BMW has an impressive reputation for dynamic driving machines with premium features, and Lumin Auto Group is renowned for its customer service and quality vehicles. Put the two together, and you can enjoy an incredible experience both shopping for and driving in one of the most prestigious used cars for sale in Sacramento. And our no-hassle pricing and easy financing mean you can get into a high-end BMW without breaking your budget. We will treat you right whether you visit us at our dealership or our online showroom. Buying a pre-owned luxury vehicle like a BMW should be easy, and at the Lumin Auto Group, it is.
Let’s face it: Buying a new BMW can be an expensive proposition, and even if you’ve got a big budget, it only makes sense to spend wisely. And like most of the used cars for sale in Sacramento, pre-owned BMWs can be a truly smart deal. It all starts with major discounts based on depreciation. The typical new car starts losing value as soon as it’s driven off the lot, with depreciation accounting for about a 20% reduction after a single year. That can easily jump to over 60% after five years. On the other hand, depreciation isn’t the same as condition. Older cars face lower pricing due to depreciation even when they’re in great shape.
The Lumin Auto Group also offers distinct advantages you may not see from other used-car dealerships. For example, our careful vehicle-selection process means that only the best-quality pre-owned BMWs ever make it into our inventory. We then back up that boast with real-world benefits that include free 30-day/1,000-mile warranties, 1 year of complimentary roadside assistance, and even a risk-free three-day exchange program for every vehicle we sell (please see us for details). We’re that confident in our vehicles so that you can be confident as well.
BMWs are certainly fun to drive, but they can also be among the best-equipped used cars for sale in Sacramento. Remember, we’re talking about a high-end German automaker that knows enthusiasts can be just as demanding as luxury customers. So BMW gives them what they want with first-class amenities, high-tech connectivity, and plenty of sophisticated safety measures. (Note: Exact features may vary by model and year.)
Sacramento is well suited for drivers with active lifestyles, and so are the used BMWs we have on our lot at the Lumin Auto Group. In fact, we go out of our way to stock only the vehicles we think will best meet the needs of area buyers — and that includes many of the most fun-to-own used convertibles for sale in Sacramento. This is also a good place to point out that BMW can provide a surprisingly wide range of vehicles for your consideration, with not only drop-tops, but two-door coupes, four-door coupes, sport sedans, station wagons, and SUVs, too. To make things easier for customers, BMW uses a simple alphanumeric naming system that gives bigger numbers to bigger vehicles. You’ll further find that odd-numbered rides tend to rely on classic BMW styling, while those with even numbers take a more avant-garde approach to design.
BMW stands for the Bayerische Motoren Werke, which simply means Bavarian Motor Works and refers to the company’s birthplace in Germany. As for BMW’s actual founding, that occurred in 1916 — although it didn’t start building cars until much later. BMW first began as an engine supplier for German aircraft and then started manufacturing motorcycles soon after. (Indeed, the BMW Motorrad division is still dedicated to motorbikes today.) However, it wasn’t until the late 1920s that BMW began building cars, and even then it was under a license from another automaker, England’s Austin.
The next key phase in BMW’s development came after World War II, when the company played a major part in rebooting Germany’s auto industry. By the 1960s, the brand’s “New Class” models were getting noticed not only in their home country but also around the world. Cars like the BMW 2002 came out at the very end of the decade, and in the early 1970s, the 5 Series and 3 Series appeared. BMW introduced its first SUV some 20 years later as a pioneer in the segment. Now also building its vehicles in the United States, BMW remains the ultimate driving machine!
