BMW Approved Used Cars

Programme benefits

The BMW AUC Programme is your assurance that every Approved Used BMW has been prepared to exacting standards. Not only does every Approved Used BMW go through more than 120 rigorous checks and full road tests, you also receive an extensive array of specific programme benefits.

1. BMW Approved Used Car Warranty

What's covered by the BMW Approved Used Car Warranty? It would be easier to ask what's not covered. Apart from routine service items like tyres, brake pads and discs, as well as any parts requiring repair or replacement due to normal wear and tear or age, your Approved Used BMW has unlimited mileage protection against breakdown and repair costs for both parts and labour for 12 months.
The features of the warranty are our commitment to deliver total customer confidence:

  • Minimum 12 months unlimited mileage
  • Backed by BMW, not 3rd party insurers
  • Even covers battery and exhaust
  • 12 months BMW MOT Cover
Full details of the 12-month unlimited mileage BMW Warranty are available from your BMW Dealer.

2. MOT test and insurance

If you have an MOT test carried out within 12 months from the date of your car order (and no more than 30 days before the due MOT date), then your BMW MOT Cover will cover you against the unexpected costs of any necessary repair or replacement of specified components.

3. Full service history

Only BMWs which have been maintained in strict adherence to BMW servicing recommendations can qualify as Approved Used BMWs. In addition, any BMW with a service due within 4,000 miles or displaying less than three service interval lights has the appropriate service carried out prior to delivery.

4. Independent vehicle history and mileage check*

Every Approved Used BMW undergoes an independent check to verify its recorded mileage and vehicle history to ensure that the car has not been stolen or written-off, and is not subject to any outstanding finance agreement. A certificate confirming that these checks have been made is supplied with each vehicle. *If the car has been imported it is not possible to check the mileage and vehicle history prior to its first registration in the UK.

5. BMW Emergency Service cover

Your Approved Used BMW comes with 12 months cover for motoring emergencies in the UK and continental Europe. So should the unthinkable happen, you, your passengers and your BMW are all covered in the event of an accidental or mechanical emergency, 24 hours a day. A reassuring thought. The emergency service cover includes:

  • Repair of your car
  • Car hire
  • Redelivery of your car
If you experience any issues whilst travelling abroad with your BMW, even if you encounter a legal or medical problem, our experienced team of multilingual staff will be able to provide you with practical advice. For full details of BMW Emergency Service cover please contact your BMW Dealer.

6. BMW commitment

We are completely confident in the quality of our Approved Used BMWs. So much so, that if we are unable to resolve a demonstrable fault arising within the first 30 days/1000 miles of your ownership (whichever is sooner), you will be entitled to an exchange, or a refund if an appropriate exchange cannot be found**. **This does not affect your statutory rights

7. Flexible finance options

No two BMW customers are alike. That's why BMW Financial Services offers a wide range of finance options to suit your personal or business needs to make acquiring an Approved Used BMW straightforward and affordable*. For details of our finance options and for information on a variety of insurance packages, please contact your local BMW Dealer. *Subject to standard underwriting criteria. All insurance products referred to above are subject to terms and conditions of the insurance policy and certain eligible criteria apply. All finance and hiring facilities are subject to status and available to over 18s in the UK only. Guarantees and indemnities may be required. Certain categories of business users may be excluded. Written quotations available on request from BMW Financial Services, Europa House, Bartley Way, Hook, Hampshire RG27 9UF.
