Benefits of a used BMW 1 Series

Getting your hands on the luxurious leather steering wheel of a BMW 1 Series doesn’t have to be a costly job. You can have access to all the modern features without the price tag of a brand-new BMW 1 Series.

Financing a used car makes it much more affordable and with our quality checks, you can drive away in a car that drives like it’s brand new – a pretty good deal if you ask us. By financing your dream car, we can tailor your fee to help you budget day-to-day life – with a car on finance, you’ll have full financial flexibility.

Just because it’s a used car, it doesn’t mean you’ll sacrifice quality. Many people enquiring about a used BMW expect a beaten-up model, but you’ll still benefit from the lusted-after features of a BMW 1 Series, including rear-wheel drive, all-wheel drive, a built-in sat nav and a contemporary interior that sets it apart from other cars. Nothing but the best is good enough with Concept Car Credit.

Frequently asked questions

How much does a BMW 1 Series cost?

The BMW 1 Series has an RRP range of between £28,704 and £41,570, depending on the model year, trim level, and condition (e.g. new or used).

Additional features, such as sporty front seats, launch control, twin exhaust pipes and rear parking sensors can also influence the cost of the BMW 1 Series.

With used car options starting from £7,610 at Concept Car Credit, purchasing a BMW hatchback has never been more affordable. And if you’d prefer to spread the cost into affordable monthly payments, we can provide a finance package to suit your needs.

To find out more about the BMW 1 Series itself or the models we currently have in our showroom, please don’t hesitate to get in touch.

Is a BMW 1 Series cheap to run?

To be clear, a BMW 1 Series may not be the cheapest car to run – but it does have one of the most advanced and economical engines within the family hatchback class.

Take the thrifty 116d, for instance. With a 1.5-litre cylinder, smaller alloy wheels and a manual gearbox, the diesel 1 Series is capable of returning up to 61.4mpg and CO2 emissions of just 120g/km.

The 118d and 120d are both front-wheel drives that use a 2.0-litre diesel cylinder with multi-stage turbocharging for maximum efficiency. The 118d can manage 58.9mpg with CO2 emissions of 127g/km, while the fuel economy rating of the 120d Sport trim drops to 57.6mpg and CO2 emissions jump to 129g/kg.

The 118i is the only petrol model within the regular BMW 1 Series range to date. Returning up to 49.6mpg whilst emitting 130g/km of CO2, it’s an affordable option for most people.

To find out more about the running costs associated with the BMW 1 Series, don’t hesitate to talk to our motor specialists, here at Concept Car Credit.

Can I get a BMW 1 Series on finance?

Even the most basic version of the BMW 1 Series will set you back at least £28,000.

We appreciate that, at these prices, buying a car is simply not feasible for most customers – especially as the cost of living continues to bite. However, with an extensive panel of financial companies on hand, we’re confident we can help you finance your dream car – regardless of your credit score.

To apply for a BMW 1 Series on finance, you can either complete the short application form online or give us a call on 0800 093 3385. We’ll process your details and ask you a few simple questions to finalise your application.

Once you’re approved, we’ll invite you to our used car showroom in Manchester where you can choose the perfect BMW 1 Series for your needs and budget.

What to look for when buying a used BMW 1 Series?

When shopping for any used car, ensure all documentation is available, and that the mileage, age and appearance of the car are consistent, as well as no signs of accident damage.

You should also look into the safety features of the car. Are the tyres up to scratch? Do the seatbelts operate properly? Do all the lights work?

On your test drive, check that there are no strange noises when breaking, the hand break works and all warning lights operate normally.

It’s also advised to check the engine’s health and oil levels for evidence of neglect. Don’t forget about the clutch either – if it makes a harsh noise when finding the biting point, it could mean repairs are imminent.

Here at Concept Car Credit, we conduct full safety tests on all aspects of the car, as well as full service and up-to-date MOT to give you the peace of mind your safety is made a priority.

If you have any questions about the checks we complete before making our cars available, don’t hesitate to get in touch or visit our Manchester showroom – we’re more than happy to answer any of your questions.
