What used BMW 2 Series sports will I get for my budget?
Prices start at around £9,500, this for a 2014 220d with an average to high mileage for the year and a full service history, bought from a trader or an independent dealer. If you’re prepared to spend between £11,500 and £14,000 you’ll find plenty of good 2015/16 cars of varying trims and engines, while £15,000 to £16,000 bags you excellent 2017 or some 2018 cars from franchised dealers. Look to spend around £17,000 to £22,000 on 2019 or some 2020 cars, with that figure rising to circa £26,500 for 2021 models.
How much does it cost to run a BMW 2 Series sports?
Servicing and insurance
Insurance groups start off quite reasonably for the lower powered cars, at group 26 for the 218i, but anything approaching performance will boost that up to as high as group 46, in the case of the M240i.
Servicing is due every 18,000 to 20,000 miles, and on the whole costs are reasonable. There are a number of transferable BMW service plan options open to the used purchaser, covering the car for three years or 36,000 miles or sometimes more, for a fairly priced one-off payment, depending on the level of cover required. There are also plenty of independent specialists who will look after a 2 Series, at a reduced rate over that charged by a main BMW dealer.
