New Cars or Used Cars?
When you purchase a car brand new, you will be able to choose exactly what you want with it. New BMW cars and new MINI cars come with a wide variety of engine options and trims, so being able to customise yours to your personal lifestyle, requirements and taste is definitely a bonus.
The vehicle will also have no history to worry about and you will be able to take advantage of the manufacturer’s full warranty.
Not to mention that you’ll be able to buy the latest models with the most advanced technology and improvements.
The biggest advantage to buying a used car over new is the price. In the first three years of their life, new cars can lose more than half of their original value, which makes buying used cars a far more affordable option.
Millions of used cars are sold every year, so while you might not get to pick the exact specification you want, there is a good chance that it already exists on the secondhand market. There is a massive amount of choice.
Which to Choose?
Ultimately, it comes down to what your priorities are. If you are someone who likes to have the latest tech and the highest quality or you know exactly what you want and are not prepared to settle for less, new cars would be the obvious choice.
If value is more important to you and you are not put off by the fact that someone else has owned the car before you, choose used!
If you want the best of both worlds, we stock a large number of approved used cars with only one previous owner and low mileage, which offer a balance of quality and value.
