The brand has built its reputation on outstanding engineering and a commitment to ingraining every one of its products with finely honed driving dynamics. Today's range is bigger than ever, so there should be a BMW used car to suit most tastes. Where to start? The cheapest way to buy a used BMW will be to search out a somewhat elderly 3-Series saloon.

Don't necessarily let higher mileages put you off with BMWs because these cars are proven to run and run. Do approach older versions of the 3, 5 and 7 Series with more caution, however, and remember that larger-engined second hand cars might be cheap to buy but can cost a pretty penny to run. The 1 Series arrived in 2004 and marked BMW's entry into the small car market, although it had already ventured there under its MINI banner. With rear-wheel-drive and some outstanding engines, this is a cut above your everyday hatchback and the growing numbers of used second hand models are priced accordingly. Sportscar fans will find the thrills they're looking for from the Z3 roadster and its replacement, the Z4. Both cars were offered in fire-breathing M guises with the M Coupe models being particularly hardcore. BMW is also well established in the 4x4 sector, a market it entered with its X5 luxury 4x4 and followed up its success with the X3. If you want a 4x4 that feels really at home on the road, these take some beating
It is imperative that you get your car in tip top condition if you want to sell it quickly and get your full asking price. Itâ€™s important to remember that you are competing against sellers that are selling similar cars to yours. Therefore, you really need to think about how you are going to present it, its mechanical condition and service history. It is these things that can really make the difference.
