I had been on the look out for a new car for quite a while when a friend of mine got fed up of me talking about it all day, so he sat me down and basically told me what sort of thing I should be looking for. He is certainly a man to listen to because he’s been a mechanic since he left school and when it comes to cars this man is very rarely wrong!
After we chatted for a while he came to the conclusion that I needed a quality car but not one that was brand new, a used car would be much more within my budget. Without any hesitation he said, BMW! Now that was a name I could trust, my dad had ferried me around in one to football matches and school as a kid. It’s also a brand that is recognized as being a world leader in the industry and one of the most reliable makes out there.
I have always been a bit skeptical about buying a second hand car because it’s something most of us know little about. I wouldn’t know if I was buying something that is going to last me a lifetime or to the end of the road. Whilst I was on the Internet doing my research I saw the tagline ‘BMW for sale’ everywhere, there is so much choice out there that it is difficult to make an informed decision.
So after researching the type of car I wanted I decided to make the process easier by only selecting available cars from reputable places and ones that would offer me some form of buyer’s protection after the sale – I think this is very important. I eventually bought my car through the official BMW used car site, it guarantees that the car has been tested and is still up to the company’s standards. The only thing that is different is the price tag; you can get some great deals on there!
The other thing that you need to decide is; how new do you need the car to be, do you have a limit? What’s the maximum mileage you want the car to have? These are important questions that you need to consider and will help you make the shortlist of cars easier to create. If you find the right website then they will do all the hard yards for you and all you have to is choose the right car for you.
So now I am the proud owner of a used BMW 3 series, I couldn’t be happier! I bought the car through the right channels so I have the peace of mind knowing that it is unlikely for something to go wrong, if something does happen I know I am completely covered by the seller. Who doesn’t love a bargain? I know that if I could I would buy another one!
