Bavarian powerhouse BMW produce some of the world’s most desirable yet attainable cars. Over the years it has covered everything from the hatchback to the hybrid sports car of the future. BMW is still a brand many people long to be a part of and there’s a ton of you out there who wanted to know our best used BMW picks. So, without any further delay, here they are.
The ‘Something for the weekend’
BMW Z4 – Under £5,000
Affordable and fun to drive, the first generation BMW Z4 makes the perfect car to enjoy a weekend trip in. If you look in the right places, you can find a good example of this motor complete with a silky 2.5-litre straight-six-cylinder engine. This lump provides all the power you need and a gorgeous traditional soundtrack to boot. It’s not the best car BMW ever made, sure, but it’s a bargain for what it is.
The Luxury SUV
BMW X5 – Under £10,000
It is amazing to think that for under £10,000, you can now find really great examples of the original BMW X5. Ok, it’s ugly as a pug dog, but it’s a very, very good SUV. What makes it special is that it was available with a stunning 4.8-litre petrol V8 engine. It will drink fuel with haste, and, as we’ve hinted, it has a face only a mother could love, but if you’re after a luxury SUV at a bargain price you’ll struggle to find better.
