The Ultimate Driving Machine is the current motto behind the juggernaut known as Bayerische Motoren Werke AG or BMW. This giant has its roots in Bavaria, but has offices and dealerships currently located across the globe. Founded back in 1916, in Munich, Bavaria, Germany, it has grown and expanded internationally. At present, BMW is known for its high end Autobahn driving machines-- toys-for-the-big-boys-- with an emphasis on luxury.
BMW has nurtured its roots over the years, translating this to customer loyalty throughout the years. BMW’s commitment to unmitigated attention to detail has gained them a prime seat in the automobile industry. This is the pride that every Bimmer feels whenever they sit behind the wheel of a BMW.
With all that history in mind, what should you expect if you’re going to a BMW dealership for the first time? Here are a few things to keep in mind.
Prestige and luxury comes to mind the first time you step into a BMW establishment.
At BMW, customer service goes hand in hand with sales. This is why they make it a point to provide good customer experience for buyers everywhere. You can come with a list of questions and they would be able to easily provide you with everything you need to know about the vehicle you’re interested in.
Test drive. Stores are designed with both aesthetic appeal and comfort in mind. Test drives aren’t uncommon when it comes to dealerships. Through it, you get to experience the feel of sitting behind the wheel and how well the car drives. You get to test many of its features as well.
Their staff provides ample help when it comes to the decision making process; offering assistance from the technical aspects of the vehicle to possible financial options when it comes to paying for it. Never be afraid or too shy to speak to the person assisting you. If you have questions, always talk to them about it.
A bimmer is the sum of its parts. That is why BMW owners always opt to get the genuine parts for replacements, repair and maintenance services. Dealerships will provide you with well-trained in-house certified BMW technicians who can fix your vehicle right up—without you having to worry about anything.
Ready to purchase your new ride? Getting your car directly from a certified BMW dealership actually provides you with access to a financial consumer loan. This means you can match your regular payment scheme according to your needs including tons of add-ons that lets you save on maintenance and off-tax in the long run.
Dealer insurance. This should give you the confidence to drive and the security that you needn’t spend too much should an accident happen to your vehicle. Never fear a blow-out or a punctured wheel and get to your destination or the nearest repair if a tire hiccup does appear. You can be sure that you’re getting only the real parts for your car to get that bling appeal always pointing up the scale.
Dealer packages can help you with the car maintenance with promos on courtesy oil change for those first visits and much more.
Buying a used Bimmer directly from BMW should be a no brainer. The car goes through a verification and validation program to ensure that the car is exactly as described. The vehicle would also go through tests and maintenance for its mileage. You would be able to buy with more confidence and know that your car, as well as all of its parts, are certified genuine. After all, if you’re paying for a certain price—you would want to get exactly what is advertised.
The CPO certification process gives the machine additional warranty. The car is fixed up to speed and brought back to tip top condition—almost like new. The dealer usually has a large collection of CPO for all types of buyers to choose from. Finding a gem is always a guarantee and rare experience for those car buyers with discriminating taste.
BMW CPO buyers are always presented with the history of the car prior to buying. This boosts overall buyer confidence, knowing that they can always check back with the dealer. This accountability ensures the buyer that should there be any issues with the car even after transaction is done, the dealership would cover and take responsibility for any damages it may have caused.
