BMW celebrate 90th anniversary

Posted in BMW by davidallen | July 20th, 2007 | 2 Responses |

It was exactly 90 years ago, on 21 July 1917. When it all started with the production of aircraft engines, followed by the design and production of motorcycles and finally the company entered the auto business and have not looked back since.


Even the WW2 did not stop BMW despite the allies many attempts, which did in fact destroy the plant in Munich during 1944, but a stroke of luck and good business, meant that by 1945 they were in fact repairing US army vehicles, and they started up the motorcycle business.

During the fifties the allies lifted most of the restrictions and production could once again begin. But it was really until the mid seventies that BMW became a household name and with the development of the three series really pushed the BMW name into every corner of the globe.

BMW has always been squashed between Mercedes Benz and VW being neither one nor the other, but the more recent models have been more of a match for both of the brands.


The future of BMW has never been better, they have a strong range of cars, highly technical specs coupled with the style and design, and are now running a successful Formula One racing team, which give the company technical advances and some great PR, that has made BMW one of the most desirable cars on the road today.

    Me personally, I have never been a fan of the BMW. From the few consumer reviews I have read on it, most have a high rate of repairs/maintenance for the majority of their vehicles. Of course, what do I know, I like my Firebird.

    Happy Anniversary to BMW! BMW might have a high rate of repairs.. this I do not know. They do come with 4yr/50,000 mile warranty and can be extended up to 6yrs/100,000 miles.. so for all the BMW buyers out there, they might want to get the extended warranty.. it’s worth the extra money. The 2006 models and up also come with 12-year limited warranty for rust protection (no mile limitation).
