At Masterparts, we stock parts for all common makes and models of vehicles – but a particular focus for us is on providing high-quality spares and parts for BMWs.
BMWs have a special place in our hearts. It’s true that BMWs qualify as high-end, luxury vehicles – and gleaming new or “barely used” models are still as popular as ever.
However, thanks to their decent engineering, large numbers of older second-hand BMWs, some dating back two decades or even longer, are also still on our roads.
This means BMWs are popular across the spectrum of vehicle owners, and there’s high demand for reliable but affordable BMW parts.
Which BMW models are the most popular in South Africa?
Models in the BMW-3 and BMW-1 Series continue to rank high on lists of the top-selling secondhand cars in South Africa. According to Cars.co.za, for example, the BMW-3 Series is the country’s second most popular used car.
These series are performing equally well in secondhand markets elsewhere too. For 2016, both the BMW-3 and BMW-1 Series made it into the top ten most popular used cars in the U.K., with the BMW-1 Series in third place and the BMW-3 Series in tenth position.
BMW performed just as well in the market for new luxury vehicles, with worldwide sales up by 6.2% in the first nine months of 2016. Also during this time, over 40,000 electric cars in the new BMW i range were sold.
