Buying an Approved Used BMW:
The introduction of the new BMW Approved Used Car internet search www.approved.bmw.co.uk has made locating a used BMW even easier. With the ability to search by model and body-style and then in more detail by age, price colour, fuel and transmission type, customers are even able to state how far they are willing to travel to view a car.
Once a car has been selected, customers can then view three photos of the actual car for sale rather than a generic image of the model. A screen showing the car's standard and additional equipment as well as technical detail can also be viewed, plus a link through to independent road test reviews is provided.
If a customer is unable to locate their desired car they can select to be notified automatically by email when the car they have specified arrives into stock at a BMW dealership.Published 11 August 2002
