Buying a Used BMW 3 Series

If you are familiar with BMWs you know that the 3 series is a highly-coveted and popular choice among Americans.  If you are in the market for a used BMW 3-Series you want to keep in mind that maintenance will play the largest roll in cost of ownership for an aging BMW.  We want you to be informed as you search for the perfect one.

Here are some things to check -

Power window regulators.  They are mounted inside of the door frame.
The Cooling System.  The belts will often become brittle.
The Secondary Air Injection System.  It may illuminate the check engine light.
Rear frame damage.  If the rear sub-frame is damaged it may be unsafe to drive.

All of these inspection points and more are essential to look for when considering a BMW 3 series.  We are here for you to inspect all of these areas and more.  We are The German Car Shoppe of Denver and we pledge to take care of your beauty providing top-flight maintenance for years to come.  Call (303) 798-2287 for an appointment at our Littleton location.

Vet it Before you Buy it.

That is good advice in hiring AND buying a used car.  When you buy someone else’s used vehicle you don’t know exactly what you are getting until a professional mechanic gives it a thorough inspection.  This is especially true when purchasing a used foreign car such as a Mercedes, BMW, or Porsche.

It is important to hire an inspector and it is really important that the inspection be done by a 3rd party person who will give an honest review and report.  Many mechanics may differ in what they check and in which order.  Do a little research as to what you expect and want your mechanic to check BEFORE you shell out the dough for the car.

Some of the very best car-buying inspection mechanics are found at The German Car Shoppe in Littleton, CO.  What else would you expect if you have your eye on a pre-owned German import?  The inspection and report that they will give you is as unbiased as you will find in the Denver area.  Give The German Car Shoppe a call to bring in your potential purchase at (303) 798-2287.
