Pre-owned BMWs can put the Ultimate Driving Machine in easier reach for a lot of people, thanks mostly due to depreciation. Now, if you buy a new car, depreciation is bad news because it can reduce the value of your purchase by some 20% after the first year alone. If you hold onto that same car for five years, you can see depreciation rates north of 60%. On the other hand, when you buy a used car, it’s already gone through a lot of its depreciation — which is essentially paid for by its earlier owner. That’s directly reflected in significantly lower pricing for used BMWs in Sherman Oaks and elsewhere.

It’s worth noting that lower-priced used cars are usually less expensive to insure as well. So purchasing a pre-owned vehicle instead of a new one can also save on one of your highest ongoing ownership costs.

Shopping at Capital Car Company then adds additional confidence since you can be sure that every pre-owned BMW on our lot has been carefully inspected by our team of automotive professionals.

BMW may be best-known for its bold approach to premium performance. Still, these are also high-end rides that can showcase amazing creature comforts, sophisticated infotainment technology, and the kind of advanced driver-assistance systems that today’s drivers demand. And just to be clear, pre-owned BMWs can be just as well-equipped as their brand-new counterparts. (Note: Exact features vary by model and year.)

  • As with many cars, used BMWs can offer smart infotainment systems that work by touch or voice control. BMW, however, takes things to the next level with available Gesture Control that can handle key functions with no-touch hand movements.
  • You can complement those tech advantages with WiFi compatibility, Android Auto, Apple CarPlay, Bluetooth, and wireless charging for easy connectivity.
  • Intelligent BMW safety technologies such as automatic braking, adaptive cruise control, lane-keeping assistance, blind-spot monitoring, and more can provide first-class peace of mind.
  • For simple ways to see important vehicle info, BMW supplies digital instrument panels and head-up displays that keep the data right in your line of sight.
  • The richly crafted BMW interiors can be lavishly equipped with artisanal attention to detail set off by authentic materials like high-grade leather, real wood, and genuine carbon-fiber trim. The heated/ventilated massage-function seats are a definite highlight.
  • Ultra-luxe cues include bone-shaking audio by Bowers & Wilkins audio systems plus the Panoramic Sky Lounge roof that’s embedded with thousands of LED lighting elements to create an amazing starry-night effect for passengers.


Drivers in Southern California certainly have unique needs and lifestyles, and used BMWs can be especially well suited for folks in the area. After all, the brand offers stunning sport sedans, aggressive and expressive coupes, capable and comfortable SUVs, and compelling convertibles.

  • The modern BMW lineup features an easy alphanumeric naming system where vehicles with odd numbers wear classic styling and those with even numbers bring more expressive designs.
  • It all starts with the 1 and 2 Series cars, plus the X1 and X2 SUVs, representing the gateway to the BMW ownership experience.
  • You’ll discover more of everything as you move up to the 3 and 4 Series cars that are complemented on the SUV side by the X3 and X4.
  • With the 5 Series and X5, BMW starts really raising the bar for luxury and performance, and the flagship models — the 7 and 8 Series cars along with the X7 SUV — are unrivaled in their classes.
  • Dynamic drop-top roadsters such as the BMW Z3 and Z4 deliver open-air driving so you can take full advantage of sunny Southern California weather.
  • BMW’s M motorsports division enhances performance with special models from across the brand’s lineup. The limited- edition M5 Competition Sedan, for example, features a 617-hp turbocharged V8 to get to 60mph in just 3.1 seconds.
  • BMW’s i models show the brand’s path toward an electrified future with choices like the compact i3, offering both EV and plug-in hybrid setups, and the i8 plug-in supercar.


BMW got its start in 1916 as a company that built airplane engines, and it’s been a transportation leader ever since. Taking the name Bayerische Motoren Werke — for Bavarian Motor Works — in 1922, BMW expanded its operations to include motorcycle engines and, later in the 1920s, began building cars (under a license from Austin, a British automaker at the time). The brand’s story picks up again after World War II when it began building its own cars in 1952.

The real breakthrough came in the 1960s with the introduction of BMW’s “New Class” models engineered to move the brand’s products into the future. Perhaps the crowning achievement was the 1972 BMW 5 Series that immediately elevated the brand’s standing with its class-leading quality and performance. By the mid-1990s, BMW was building its vehicles in the United States and bringing out its first SUV, the X5. Today, both new and pre-owned BMWs are highly sought-after for their exclusive approach to driving.
