A plethora of online advice is available on what to consider when buying a pre-owned BMW from Big Motoring World or other BMW authorized dealerships in the UK. In this post, we take a look at some of the key points to keep in mind when shopping for a used Bimmer at Big Motoring World.

1. Financing

Once you have determined the used BMW model you are interested in, you need to move fast to make sure it is not sold out before you get to it. If you are paying cash, well, there is not much to do except get a cashier’s cheque or withdraw the funds when it is time to deal.

On the other hand, if you are financing the vehicle, it is prudent to get pre-approved for a loan. This allows you to know your buying budget and the interest rate for which you will qualify. Some financiers may not offer an auto loan if the car has exceeded a specified age. If this is the case, you may need to apply for a personal loan. However, be aware that the latter bears higher interest rates than auto loans.

2. Certified used cars vs. non-certified used cars

Certified used cars undergo rigorous testing before Big Motoring World Prestige or Big Motoring World Snodland dealerships put them up for sale. If a vehicle fails the assessments, the factory’s trained specialists will either disqualify the car from the CPO program or fix-up all the issues required for the car to reach certification standards.

It is, therefore, prudent to go for certified used cars if you are looking to buy a used BMW. While all used cars, certified pre-owned or not, bear some risk at the time of purchase, buying a certified used car greatly reduces that risk—enough to give you peace of mind. It is certainly worth the premium price.

3. Negotiate a reasonable price and close the deal

If you have done enough research on the used BMW you desire, you will be in an excellent position to negotiate a good price at Big Motoring World. You should be able to establish a fair price for the vehicle you are interested in by appraising it and obtaining its true market value. Make certain you choose the proper options and input the correct miles.

Bear in mind that the true market value is an average. You may end up below or above the figure. However, as long as you are within reasonable range, you will get a fair deal at Big Motoring World. Moreover, you need to realize that the margins for pre-owned cars are greater than for new cars at Big Motoring World Canterbury.

In summary, finding the pre-owned BMW that will precisely suit your needs for years to come takes some planning and research. As is the case for many other BMW authorized dealerships, Big Motoring World has a site that assists you in choosing the most suitable BMW—one that will perfectly fit your lifestyle.


Buying a Pre-Owned Car is the Better Option

Between a used car and a new one, which would you prefer? There is a lot debate concerning buying used cars or new ones. There are those who love the smell of a brand new car.

Others feel that this scent comes at a high price. Proponents of pre-owned cars would probably give the following reasons for their purchasing habit:

  • Depreciation: A car starts depreciating the moment a buyer drives it out of the dealership. New cars depreciate fast within the first 1-3 years after purchase.

Some lose over 40% of their value within the first 1 year. A used car on the other hand, has gone through initial depreciation.

This is an advantage because if you resell it in future, it will fetch the same amount or close to what you bought it for.

  • Hidden costs are few if any: With a pre-owned car, what you see is what you get. There are no hidden costs associated with the sale.

Sales people get a commission so they sell unnecessary extras for new cars. For example, shipping charges, destination fees, rust proofing and paper fees are excuses that dealers use for overcharging on a new car.

Useless add-ons in a new car are cheaper features in a pre-owned car. Although you might not get all the features you want, you will not pay extra for things you did not even ask for.

A used car has few hidden costs if any. All you need to do is to sign the paper work and voila!  Mission accomplished!

  • Price: You can buy a used 2012 Porsche for the price of a new 2014 Honda. The price of a used car is lower so you can step up to a better model for the same price.

A used, low mileage, well maintained car will save you more money in initial price, taxes and long term costs.

You can get a pre-owned luxury car at an affordable price from dealerships such as Big Motoring World Prestige and Big Motoring World Canterbury.

  • Lower insurance costs: A used car is cheaper to insure than a new car.
  • Certification: Most pre-owned cars are certified. This means that they come with an extended warranty and service guarantee.

This warranty is usually longer than that previously given by the factory. Pre-owned cars usually go through a rigid process of inspecting their mechanical and cosmetic parts.

You may feel like you have taken over car issues by buying a used car but you can give yourself some assurance by ensuring that it is certified.

One of the dealerships that sell such vehicles is the Big Motoring World. The transaction is under contract, which enables you to go back to the dealer if you experience any problems after purchase.

  • Reliability: A pre-owned car has been tried and tested before. Any problems it may have had and were overlooked by the factory, may have already been fixed by the previous owner.

A new car may come with teething problems, which will become your problem to solve.

Most dealerships offer after sales services. The Big Motoring World for example offers a cutting edge car service and MOT testing service at the Big Motoring World Snodland.

The sales executives at the Big Motoring World dealerships have the training to answer any questions regarding the car that you would like to buy

Buying a new car has its benefits. However, the costs outweigh them all.

New BMW M2 Coupe Tester Shows M Quad Pipes; Spied Alongside M3


One of the typical M model treats missing from the first BMW M2 Coupe prototype we spied a couple of weeks ago, were the quad exhaust pipes positioned on the corners of the rear diffuser. Not any more, as this newest M2 Coupe tester finished in white gains the signature M four-tip exhausts, signaling that development is moving to the next phase.

If done right, the M2 Coupe could prove to be a game changer for BMW, giving petrol-heads a modern-day successor to the much-loved M3 E30 of the mid-1980s, early 1990s. The fact that the current M235i has generally received glowing reviews, only adds to this notion.

More than half of the body of this prototype that was spied together with the new M3 was wrapped in a swirly camo, but that doesn’t hide the blistered front and rear wheel fenders borrowed from the new M235i Racing. We can also see the huge brake discs behind the M3/M4style alloy wheels shod in low profile rubber.

We’ve said it before that the M2 would be a good fit for a hi-po turbocharged four, but given the existence of the 320hp M235i and the availability of the M3 and M4′s 425hp (431PS) 3.0-liter turbocharged six, BMW will probably go for a force-fed inline six-cylinder, which should split the power difference between the two aforementioned models at around 370-380 horses. Whether BMW would achieve this by dumbing down the M3′s 3.0-liter unit or reducing its displacement to 2.7 liters, for example, remains unknown at this time.
