We Sell the Best Used BMW Colorado Springs Has to Offer

Whether you're buying your first vehicle, replacing an old one, or looking for a second car, shopping for a used vehicle is a great way to save some money. There are a wide range of quality options out there and you might even find a diamond in the rough during the process.

One of the most popular vehicles to buy used right now is a BMW. They combine a sleek and stylish design with an impressive performance, which is a large reason why they're consistently in the top-five luxury vehicles in terms of units sold each year.

In 2019, BMW made company history when they passed Mercedes-Benz as the top luxury vehicle brand in the United States. They sold nearly 325,000 units that year, which was almost 10,000 more than their rival.

BMW vehicles have continued to become a preferred choice for families of all sizes, in addition to being the perfect car for those that love a classy ride. Better yet, they show no signs of stopping anytime soon.

With how popular they are today, it's the perfect time to buy a used one. You won't have to deal with the rapid depreciation of the vehicle in the first few years, which generally happens when buying a new one, and won't have to pay an insane amount to call a BMW yours. 

 

The History Behind the BMW Brand

The BMW brand is a German automotive company that has been around for over 100 years. It was originally founded in 1913 as Rapp-Motorenwerke GmbH, a company that made aircraft engines during WWI. Once the war ended, they shifted focus to railway brakes and built-in motors.

After several name changes, the company finally settled on the name Bayerische Motoren Werke GmbH in 1917. Five years later, it was changed to Bayerische Motoren Werke AG due to new ownership. Despite all the name changes, the company lists the BMW official 'birthday' as 1916.

It wasn't until 1928 that BMW produced their first car, which was a Dixi car that didn't take on the BMW name until 1929. Once the second World War was finished, automaking became their sole focus and they started to make a real name for themselves in the industry.

When naming their vehicles, BMW uses an alphanumeric system. The series number (first number in the name) can be 1-8, with the second two numbers indicating the size of the engine. After the three numbers, there's generally a letter. An 'i' generally means gas engine, but can mean electric vehicle if found before the numbers. An 'X' is an SUV, while a 'Z' is a roadster.
