2006 BMW 3 SERIES
I have always like German cars, specially BMWs, that's why I now own a 2006 BMW 325i . I commute to work and university on a everyday basis. I have entourter little maintenance stuff that needs to be fix or replace, but car performance overall it's amazing! Those in line 6 motors are legendary! Can't brake those things easy. I'll recommend to see the pros & cons of every vehicle, BMW in specific maintenance could get expensive, not because parts are expensive, but labor it's extensive plus very few shops have BMW tools to do the job.
2005 BMW 3 SERIES
The relatively low miles on the engine versus the pristine interior condition. The service record and exterior cosmetic condition also played a factor. It was obvious the car was well cared for and only lightly driven. My test drive seem to suppose that supposition. Commuter car use - only 3-5 miles per day.
2000 BMW M+ROADSTER
I bought this car as a "toy" to drive on nice summer days, and it doesn't disappoint. I don't think I've ever had the convertible top up! It's very fast, it turns heads wherever I go, and is really a source of pure driving enjoyment. It lacks many things a more "modern" car has, but that's part of its charm. My wife loves it and she has commented on several occasions after a drive what a stunningly beautiful car this is.

2001 BMW X5
Bought it because it's a look of car for the $4000-$5500 range. All the options and generally luxurious. Beats most SUVs out there hands down. However, you gotta be able to spot a bad one.
Used BMW Information
BMW, or Bavarian Motor Works (Bayerische Motoren Werke) is a German automobile and motorcycle manufacturer that was founded in 1916. BMW owns the Mini brand as well as the Rolls-Royce brand and produces motorcycles as BMW Motorrad. In common parlance, BMW cars are often referred to as "Bimmers" and motorcycles as "Beamers." BMW is one of the Big 3 German luxury automakers, the other two being Audi and Mercedes-Benz.
In 1917, the Rapp Motorenwerke restructured as BMW and the company ceased building aircraft engines after WW I and began producing motorcycles after the Armistice. The company began building cars in 1928. Through the years, the company built iconic cars, such as the Isetta with its fascia opening as the door, and others. In the 1990s, despite some difficulties and changes, the company prospered and purchased the Rover group, which included Rover, Land Rover, MG, Austin and Morris. With these assets incurring losses, however, BMW sold them (they became MG Rover and Land Rover respectively), but kept the Mini brand, which it launched in 2001 with the New Mini (now the Mini Cooper).
In the used car and motorcycle market, BMW is well-represented with the company offering some of the most popular models on the road. Popular motorcycles include the R1200RT, the S1000RR, the K-series, and others.
In used cars, many Bimmers are seen on the market, commanding respect due to their luxury and presence. Resale values remain good for BMW vehicles, and the 3-series and 5-series sedans are well-liked. The sporty BMW Z4 is a hard-to-get car that is much-coveted. Now, four years after its introduction, the X3 is being seen in the used marketplace as well as the X5 and X6.
