BMW approved used car scheme

Everything you need to know about BMW's approved used scheme

There’s the odd 2004 car available on BMW’s used scheme, but most are no more than 10 years old and have done less than 100,000 miles. Prices start at under £5,000, yet whatever the age, spec or mileage, there’s a 12-month warranty and breakdown cover; more if the car still has its original guarantee.

All approved used BMWs go through a 120-point inspection, including mileage, history and finance checks. If a car bought through the scheme fails its MoT within 12 months, BMW will cover the cost of getting it passed. Buyers can also take out a two-year service package, as long as the car hasn’t covered more than 120,000 miles by the end of the plan.
