For many drivers, purchasing a pre-owned BMW can be a great way to enjoy more luxury and performance for less money. That’s because almost any brand-new car — including from the most prestigious names — is still subject to depreciation. As a result, the typical new vehicle starts losing value as soon as it's driven off the lot, and its value keeps falling as the years go by. The result is that most new cars are only worth 40% of their original value after five years on the road. Of course, as the car’s value falls, so does its purchase price and, usually, its insurance costs.
You can also shop with confidence knowing Miramar Car Center is committed to offering the highest-quality pre-owned vehicles, and you can feel free to check that out for yourself with a used-car history report that can tell you more about a used BMW’s past owners, past service records, and any past accidents.
You expect world-class features from a world-class automaker like BMW, and the company’s pre-owned models more than deliver. They can serve up a compelling range of intuitive and easy-to-use equipment for high-end infotainment, advanced driver-assistance systems, and lavish comfort. (Note: Exact features vary by model and year.)
The athletically inclined BMW lineup includes cars and SUVs for a variety of preferences and budgets, and our consultants are eager to help you with the information you need to find the best fit. Notably, that includes finding the right financing program based on our strong relationships with local lenders.
The company we now know as BMW began life building airplane engines and took its current name, Bayerische Motoren Werke, in 1922. (As for the name itself, it simply means the Bavarian Motor Works.) BMW soon expanded its business to also build motorcycle engines, and in the late 1920s, it began building its own cars under license from the British automaker Austin. After being interrupted by World War II, the company restarted its assembly lines in 1948 for motorcycles and in 1952 for cars.
The modern BMW story starts in the 1960s with the launch of the company’s “New Class” models that soon gained a world-wide reputation for quality and performance. With the debut of the original BMW 5 Series in 1972, the brand moved into high gear and hasn’t looked back. It’s also worth noting that BMW began building cars in the United States in 1994, allowing you to enjoy a measure of homegrown high performance.
