BMWs are world-renowned for their excellent build quality, and excellent reliability ratings. However, they are also notorious for being expensive to maintain. We’ll cover that in another FAQ.

Generally, used BMWs tend to be inexpensive. This is because the used BMW market is oversaturated and BMWs themselves are expensive to maintain and repair. They also have low residual value.

A well-maintained BMW will typically last between 10-15 years, or 150,000 and 200,000 miles. This assumes that you’re only driving the vehicle around 13,500 per year.

Because it is a luxury vehicle, insurance for a BMW tends to be on the more expensive side. The BMW 5 Series and BMW X6 especially tend to be more expensive to insure than average.

Many people wrongly assume that BMW means “British Motor Ways.” As a Bavarian motor company, BMW actually stands for “Bayerische Motoren Werke” or “Bavarian Engine Works Company.

BMW is owned by the BMW Group.

Because of their high-performance engines and the specialized knowledge, parts, and equipment required to maintain them, BMWs tend to be more expensive than many other vehicle brands to maintain.

BMW replacement parts are among the most expensive in the industry; and the older the BMW, the more expensive the parts. The reason for this is that they are German-made, with specialty materials, parts, and technology.

BMW owners love the sturdy build, powerful engines, fast-moving parts, and stylish looks of their BMW. The emphasis of the BMW manufacturer is on top-tier performance and everyday drivability.

Absolutely! BMW distinguishes itself with its focus on combining everyday drivability with top-tier performance.
