    All servicing and repair work on your BMW or MINI will be carried out by the Munich Legends BMW trained technicians without affecting the manufacturer’s warranty in any way. Of course all genuine BMW and MINI parts are covered by the same full BMW/MINI warranty offered by BMW franchised dealers. Your peace of mind is therefore guaranteed.

    At Munich Legends, our hourly rate is less than half the rate typically charged by the BMW main dealer network. Our parts department offer a price guarantee as standard, and all BMW/MINI genuine parts are typically up to 30% or more below main dealer prices. Overall savings on servicing and repair bills can be around 50% or more compared to the BMW main dealer network. We check our prices to ensure they remain competitive on a monthly basis.

    Many of our customers choose to have their BMW and MINI service carried out whilst they wait. We offer hot and cold drinks, Wi-Fi internet access and TV, comfy seating and a friendly atmosphere for those who choose to stay with their car. We encourage customers to inspect our workshops and meet our technicians should they wish to do so. For those customers who choose our 1-2-3 Free courtesy car service, most services are completed by the next working day, with your car returned to you at the location of your choice. Should any unplanned work become necessary (which will only be carried out with your full authority) and parts need to be ordered (we carry all standard service items in stock) this may mean the usual next day turnaround is not possible. We keep our customers informed at every step of the way, and there is no surcharge for keeping the courtesy charge for the duration of the work. Check with our service reception team for more precise information.

    We still operate the original 1980s ‘BMW 24-hour service reception’ from the days when The Ashdown Garage was the local main agent. In reality it is only a nightsafe, but it is fully secure and you can park your BMW under the full gaze of our 24-hour CCTV in front of the showroom. Your car will be booked in the usual way as soon as our staff arrive the next day. For out of hours collections your key can be collected from our dedicated key safe boxes, your vehicle will be waiting for you under the CCTV cameras.

    We are open every day from 8 am to 6 pm although our service reception staff will wait for customers who are held up or unable to arrive before closing time, (wherever possible) by prior arrangement. We welcome customers who wish to collect their car in person. Our service reception team are happy to discuss any aspect of our service work and ongoing care for your BMW/MINI either over the telephone, by email or in person.

    We always use only genuine BMW and MINI parts for all service and repair work – guaranteed (unless requested otherwise by you). These ‘OEM’ parts come with a full manufacturer warranty – exactly the same warranty offered by the BMW franchised (main dealer) network. Where specifically requested by the customer we are able to source a variety of parts from alternative sources, and even reconditioned or second hand parts can be found. Although these alternatives do not come with the same ‘cast iron’ guarantee offered by BMW for approved parts, almost all non BMW parts will come with a guarantee or warranty, from three months to one year. Some customers even choose to supply parts they have sourced themselves. Please ask our service reception team or parts department for further details.

    All our work is fully guaranteed and backed by our world renowned after care service. Throughout our twenty year history we have built a strong reputation for customer care and after sales back up. At Munich Legends we are proud of our position as the country’s leading Independent BMW dealer.

    I recently underwent crash repair services by ML, and I must say the level of service was truly exceptional. They efficiently coordinated the retrieval of my car from another BMW main dealer for a quote. Surprisingly, their pricing surpassed that of the BMW main dealer by an impressive 50%, without compromising on the quality of work. While I hope to avoid the need for future crash repairs, I am now inclined to entrust ML with all my servicing needs based on this positive experience. Highly recommended for their competitive pricing and top-notch service.

    I have been taking both my E60 M5 and lately my E92 LE500 M3 here for the last 15 years. As always, great service, great expertise, great knowledge, great staff. No hesitation in recomending this very professional set up to everyone who needs BMW specialist workmanship.

    I recently had the pleasure of dealing with Munich Legends, and my experience was nothing short of exceptional. As a BMW enthusiast but rookie, I was in need of some expert advice, and I decided to reach out to Munich Legends based on their stellar reputation in the automotive community. What set Munich Legends apart was their willingness to share their specialist BMW knowledge for free. This level of commitment to customer satisfaction is truly commendable. I initially contacted them seeking advice on a technical issue I was facing with my BMW, and to my surprise, they were more than happy to assist. The standout individual during my interaction was Nick from the parts department. Nick's depth of knowledge and passion for BMWs were evident from the outset. Not only did he provide valuable insights into resolving my issue, but he went above and beyond by offering additional tips and tricks on where to find certain parts that are no longer made. It's not every day that you come across a business that genuinely cares about its customers and takes the time to share its expertise without any financial obligation. Munich Legends' commitment to fostering a sense of community among BMW enthusiasts is truly commendable. The wealth of knowledge and genuine passion for these iconic vehicles that Munich Legends embodies is a testament to their status as a true asset to the BMW community. In conclusion, my experience with Munich Legends was nothing short of legendary. The free expert advice, especially from Nick in the parts department, showcased their dedication to customer satisfaction and their commitment to fostering a strong BMW enthusiast community. I highly recommend Munich Legends to anyone seeking top-notch service, genuine expertise, and a true passion for BMWs.

    Took my BMW F30 335D here for a gearbox service. I provided my own parts and the work was completed within 1 day and was available to collect the following morning. Having struggled to find a garage that would offer this service for a reasonable price, I'm glad I found Munich Legends, the hourly rate is £99+VAT, much cheaper than a main dealer. I took the offer up of a loan car which happened to be a manual Mini Cooper S.. quite a nippy car too! The car can be loaned either on a "replace the fuel you use" or "0.30 pence per mile" basis. Total cost for their work was £118.90, using provided parts. Overall highly recommended and would definitely use going forward for servicing and repairs.

    Have been using Munich Legends for a number of years, always received great service. Previously they were able to fit me in for a new water pump days before Christmas, then had an issue with the door lock on my X5 just before a trip to southern France, again they fitted me in last minute to help me out. Most recently had some work done on my 335i Touring, great communication and friendly service. Thank you

    Having not been there before I’ve ended up going to Munich Legends twice this year and on both occasions the service has been exemplary. Earlier this year they rebuilt the diff on my e39 which is not something many others can do. More recently I purchased a lovely M5 touring from them - very well prepared and priced car and an excellent service from Dan and Michelle that made for a friendly and relaxed purchase.

    I brought my E46 M3 from Munich 10 years ago and they have been looking after it ever since. The upkeep carried out through Munich Legends has always been on point and from purchasing the car till today I would not be able to tell it has aged in the way it drives or looks through the quality of the work which has been carried out. I have just got my car back from being serviced along with some work I wished to have been carried out and all was on time and I was kept informed of the progress throughout the job. Top work once again Munich Legends. 🤟🏻

    We have been taking our BMW's to Munich Legends for over 20 years. We simply wouldn't go anywhere else. Customer service is excellent, from calling and speaking to Sean, to book the car in, to sorting out a loan car & to collecting the car. Always makes it a painless experience. Thank you to everyone at Munich Legends
