How To Choose Between A New Or Used BMW

If you’re thinking of buying a new car or buying a used car, there are many things to consider, such as price, features, warranty, and financing. To help you make the best car buying choice, we compare some of the benefits of buying a new BMW versus purchasing a pre-owned BMW from our Miami BMW dealership.

New Car Benefits Explained.

3. Better Financing.

Whether you lease or finance your new BMW, you may find that banks will give you a better rate because they prefer financing a new car that’s going to hold its value, compared to that of a used car. Continue Reading →
