Pre-registered BMW deals

Save more than £10,000 on a car that's as good as new: the best pre-registered BMW deals

What's the difference between a new car and a pre-registered car? The answer is not much more than a number plate. Oh, and savings of more than £10,000 in some cases.

Some current deals on pre-registered BMWs will save you more than 30% on the car's list price, even though they are as good as new, with just a handful of miles on the clock and paintwork that hasn't lost its factory-fresh sheen.

These cars have already been registered - most commonly to a dealership that's trying to meet sales targets - so they are counted as 'used' vehicles with one owner. This means their number plate has already been issued, so it may not be the very latest registration.

But if that's not a concern, you can make huge savings on the very latest cars, which are available for immediate delivery. At the moment, there are plenty of cars to choose from . Scroll down for our pick of the best deals or click above to search them all.

Pre-registered BMW deals

Pre-registered BMW 1 Series deals

BMW 1 Series list price from £25,005
BuyaCar price from £24,999
Monthly finance from £360

The BMW 1 Series is around the size of a Volkswagen Golf, but it costs around £2,000 more to buy a brand new one. However, it's very possible that pre-registered 1 Series models could see prices drop below £20,000 with BuyaCar.

This latest one Series has only been on sale since the end of 2019, so pre-registered stock is still pretty thin on the ground, but in the run up to the next batch of 70-plate new cars due to arrive in September, we expect dealerships across the UK to begin putting their 1 Series stock up for sale as pre-registered models.

BMW changed things up with the new 1 Series by adopting a more standard front-wheel drive set up in favour of the traditional and popular rear-wheel drive BMWs have become known for. It's looks have also divided opinion - less so than the newly revealed 4 Series with its monster grill - but the most important thing is that the 1 Series remains an enjoyable car to drive, with strong engines and a decent interior.


Pre-registered BMW 2 Series deals

BMW 2 Series list price from £26,690
BuyaCar price from £23,999
Monthly finance from £395

The BMW 2 Series range is a versatile one. On first glance, the 2 Series Coupe is a sporty yet reasonably affordable car that offers desirable styling and a number of high-performance variants including the M2. 

Take a second look, though, and you'll also find the altogether different 2 Series Active Tourer and Grand Tourer variants. These are taller, MPV-style cars that in the case of the Gran Tourer offer seven seats. 

So whether you're after stylish sports car looks or people carrier practicality, the BMW 2 Series will provide, and you'll be making some decent savings with pre-registered deals on BuyaCar, with up to £7,000 worth of discounts on offer compared to a brand new car.


Pre-registered BMW 4 Series deals

BMW 4 Series Gran Coupe list price from £36,085
BuyaCar price from £29,999
Monthly finance from £452

A brand new BMW 4 Series Coupe has just gone on sale, with a striking and devisive new look. But, for now at least, the more practical Gran Coupe remains unchanged sitting somewhere between the 2 Series Coupe and the 3 Series saloon. It's a great car to drive, with more than enough power coming from even the smallest 420i engine. 

With xDrive four-wheel drive and a host of cutting-edge tech, the 4 Series is certainly a capable machine. The only downfall is that lack of practicality when it comes to carrying passengers. The roof is low, even in Gran Coupe guise, so anyone sat in the back is going to feel the squeeze.

But, with pre-registered savings of as much as £13,000 compared to the price of a brand new one, the BMW 2 Series becomes a much more interesting proposition.


Pre-registered BMW 5 Series deals

BMW 5 Series list price from £38,600
BuyaCar price from £29,591
Monthly finance from £379

Unless you travel off road, the BMW 5 Series is likely to be all the car you'll ever need. Its vast boot provides plenty of versatility and the rear seats won't cramp your passengers, even if they are basketball player-sized. It's packed with the latest technology and glides along motorways, while managing a decent sports car impression when you really want to get going on country roads. There's even a four-wheel drive version to keep you moving in wintry weather or on a muddy field.

The price for all of this is surprisingly low, and we expect pre-registered prices to dip below £30,000 on BuyaCar, offering substantial savings on the price of brand new one.
