BMW is a German automotive company that produces luxury vehicles that are known for their quality, driving performance and high-tech features. From two-seaters to seven-seaters, some famous BMW models in Malaysia include the BMW 3 series, BMW 5 series, BMW X1, and the BMW X3.
BMW cars are mainly made in Germany and imported to other countries worldwide. In Malaysia, BMW Group Malaysia opened their own facility to assemble Completely Knocked Down (CKD) BMW cars in Kulim, Kedah.
Used BMW cars may face certain issues. According to the Which? Consumer Report, 25 percent of BMW drivers that owned a BMW for less than three years revealed their vehicles required repairs. Common issues faced across the different models included problems with non-engine electrics, vehicle software, lighting and dashboard displays.
BMW offers extended warranty packages which are:
5 Years Unlimited Mileage Warranty Package;
5 Years/100,000km Service Package; and
5 Years Unlimited Mileage Warranty & 5 Years / 100,000km Service Package.
The prices of these packages range between RM5,300 and RM49,800, according to the car model. Maintenance costs incurred after the warranty period for repairs such as changing the tires, an oil change or air conditioner servicing range between RM500 and RM5,000*.
*Estimates are based on service repairs without major engine or gearbox overhauls.
The road tax for a BMW depends on the engine cc. All electric vehicles (EV) in Malaysia are currently exempted from paying road tax until 31 December 2025 and that includes vehicles like the BMW i3s and i8. The BMW X6 4.4 (4395 cc)’s road tax, on the other hand, costs roughly RM8,400.
After three years, a BMW depreciates about 35 percent of its original sales price, and about 45 to 55 percent of the original price after five years. This varies based on factors including the car’s condition and mileage.
Insurance rate is calculated based on the market price of your car, coverage type, location, engine capacity and your No Claims Discount (NCD). For example, a used BMW 318i (1998 cc) in Peninsula Malaysia with zero percent NCD will cost roughly RM3,088* yearly, compared to a brand new BMW318i at RM5,480*.
*Based on estimations of used and new car price.
