Used BMW For Sale
BMW's vehicles - whether new or used - sell better than oxygen to astronauts. Highlights include the 7 Series which is the manufacturer's swankiest saloon and has more power/equipment than Captain Kirk's Starship Enterprise. As such, the most expensive new version has a 6.0-litre 544bhp V12 engine, a hard drive for storing thousands of songs, and costs more than £104,000. But pleasingly this - and the lower-spec trims - cost comparatively little once they have depreciated for a while. The BMW 7 Series is joined by the 5 Series Saloon which is smaller and cheaper. Now, thrill seekers might be tempted to buy a super-fast M5 trim but many of these have been thrashed to within an inch of their lives. Best choose carefully, then. BMW also knocks-out the 3 Series Saloon which is smaller than the 5. These two vehicles are fantastic to drive and can be easily found for sensible money. But there is a potential problem. Whereas a saloon boot easily swallows a couple of suitcases that is about it. Family motorists might therefore prefer a 5 Series or 3 Series Tourer. But remember, estates carry a lot of weight which can lead to heavy wear of a car's mechanics and its interior. So, buyers must be more careful than Captain Kirk in a room filled with Klingons.
BMW has a range of four-wheel-drives too. These include high-spec versions of the X1/X3 plus every version of the X5/X6. Such machinery is relatively rare on the second-hand market so properly maintained examples in reasonable condition tend to cost a pretty penny. Still cheaper than Captain Kirk's Enterprise, though. The manufacturer also has a coupe range that includes the M6 and convertibles such as the Z3 and Z4. Hatchback lovers, in contrast, might favour the BMW 1 Series which even brand new can be picked-up for the price of a top of the range Ford Fiesta. But this accessibility might become a problem for the manufacturer. Why? Because one of the reasons its cars are popular is that they wear a prestigious badge that (theoretically) is beyond the reach of everyday motorists. But BMW's expansion into the lower end of the market has ensured its cars can be found on every street corner. Surely, a badge that is easily obtainable can only be fashionable/prestigious for so long. Great cars, but the company has to be careful not to overexpose itself. James Kirk should remember that to.
