BMW Approved Used Car Scheme

Every manufacturer has a used approved scheme to tempt buyers, but what do they all offer and how do they compare? We'll show you in this handy guide...

BMW badge

Any car bought through the BMW scheme (or the related and identical Mini approved used car scheme) gets a 12-month, unlimited-mileage warranty, one year’s UK and European roadside assistance, a multi-point mechanical check and full vehicle preparation, a full service history guarantee, a free MOT and a 30-day or 1000-mile exchange policy, if a demonstrable fault is unable to be fixed. What’s more, the scheme covers used cars of any age and with no mileage limits, making it very attractive.

In fact, we rate it so highly that is was a runner-up in the best Used Car Scheme category in our recent What Car? Used Car of the Year Awards.
