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.


1. A New Car Is Exclusively Yours.

When you drive your new BMW off our lot, it’s exclusively yours. No one else but you has ever driven it. Moreover, a brand-new BMW doesn’t come with any surprises or issues left over from a previous owner.

2. Full Factory Warranty.

Getting the full benefit of new-car warranty protection is one of the perks of buying new. BMW has one of the best and most comprehensive new-car warranties in the auto industry. And it comes with every new 2017 BMW we sell.

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.

4. The Latest Technology.

If you’re someone who craves the latest tech, you’ll find more advanced features, such as BMW’s groundbreaking i-Drive rotary controller, Bluetooth® hands-free calling, large touchscreen display, and voice-activated commands. You may not get some of these features on a used car that’s a few years old.

5. Improved Performance & Fuel Economy.

Better handling, better performance, and better fuel economy are some of the many benefits of buying new. You’ll get BMW’s latest advancements in engineering and design excellence when you buy a brand-new 2017 BMW, like the sporty and sophisticated 2017 BMW 320i or the stunning new 2017 BMW 540i.

The Benefits Of Buying Pre-Owned.


1. Depreciation Already Factored In.

Regardless of which new car you buy, the moment you drive it off the lot it instantly becomes a “used car.” When you purchase a pre-owned vehicle, the original owner has already taken the depreciation hit on the vehicle, which is partly reflected in the lower purchase price.

2. Lower Purchase Price.

As we just mentioned, pre-owned BMWs cost less, which is perhaps their biggest selling point. If you purchase one of our many superbly reconditioned BMW Certified Pre-owned vehicles for sale near Miami, you can actually get the best of both worlds: A like-new BMW with a comprehensive warranty and legendary performance for much less than the cost of a new car.

3. Save On Registration & Insurance.

As a general rule of thumb, most used cars for sale in Miami cost less both to register and to insure.

4. It’s Not 100% Perfect.

The car’s value and quality aren’t affected, but buying a “gently used” BMW with a few cosmetic blemishes may take some of the sting out of getting that first new-car scratch.


5. More To Choose From.

With many different years, models, makes, colors, and body styles, you’ll find a wide choice of pre-owned vehicles at South Motors BMW to match your budget and driving needs.
