Things to keep in mind before Buying BMW 3 Series

When buying a new car in general one must look for things like body panels that are out of line, or load bearing beams that seem to have been damaged. The next thing to check whether the paint is original or it has been repainted, a quick check under concealed plastic panels is a great way to check for unmatched paint. Another thing to check for is underbody rust in humid or sea adjacent areas.

A good way to check if the car has been rear-ended is by checking the boot. Flip open the spare wheel cover and remove the wheel completely. If the car was repaired after an accident the floor will have visible signs as the surface wouldn’t be smooth as it would in an undamaged car.

In the end, always remember to check for complete documentation including service records. Also, do check with the insurance company for any past claims, which will make you aware of the accidents the car has been involved in. Last but not the least, get the car checked from a trusted workshop before closing the deal.

    In its latest avatar, the BMW 3 Series receives a complete makeover; both, inside and out. The 330i M Sport is packed with features to the brim and offers performance that gets you much closer to the M version without having to shell out much. And with the all-new CLAR platform, the new 3 Series is lighter and gets a stiffer chassis, which has resulted in having a good balance between handling and ride comfort.
