BMW’s origin & history

BMW, or Bayerische Motoren Werke AG, has a rich history dating back to its founding in 1916 Munich, Germany. Initially an aircraft engine manufacturer during World War I, BMW shifted its focus to motorcycle production post-war due to restrictions brought in by the Treaty of Versailles, creating iconic models like the R32. In 1928, BMW entered the automobile market by acquiring Fahrzeugfabrik Eisenach and producing the Dixi, based on the British Austin 7. However, BMW quickly developed its designs and began producing its own unique automobiles. Throughout the 20th century, BMW solidified its reputation for producing high-performance luxury vehicles. It introduced iconic models such as the BMW 328 sports car in the 1930s and the BMW 2002 in the 1960s, which helped establish the brand as a leader in the compact sports saloon segment. Over the decades, the company has consistently introduced ground-breaking models, including the 3 Series, 5 Series, and 7 Series, as well as the renowned M series performance vehicles, each setting new standards for performance, luxury, and driving dynamics in their respective segments.

BMW reliability

Historically, BMW has been known for producing cars that offer a balance of performance, luxury, and driving dynamics with unrivalled reliability, but there have been periods where concerns have surfaced. In the 1980s and 1990s, BMW faced some challenges with reliability, particularly with electrical issues and engine cooling system problems in certain models. However, BMW took steps to address these issues through improved engineering and quality control processes. In the early 2000s, BMW made significant strides in improving reliability, with many models receiving high marks in various reliability surveys. This has continued throughout recent years, with all BMW models being widely regarded as well-built, reliable, and safe vehicles. As always, though, a large factor in the reliability of any car comes down to regular maintenance and care following the manufacturer’s recommended schedule.

BMW servicing

Servicing your BMW in line with the manufacturer’s specifications and schedule is a vital part of ensuring the reliability & longevity of the car. An often overlooked part of this process is the running-in service required on most BMW models, usually to be carried out within the first 1,200 miles of driving. This is as important as any other service for your BMW, and we would never bring a BMW into stock that hasn’t had this carried out on time. BMW’s iDrive acts as a digital filing system for your car and your service information is logged within the car and on BMW’s database. This alerts you on the car when a service is approaching/due and means you can easily view your BMW’s future service requirements and history.
