BMW was created into a carmaker back in 1917, although they started life out in manufacturing aircraft. A year later and all its efforts were put into building cars, and we can only thank that decision. Its very first car to enter production was the Dixi and is a far cry from the models we know and love from BMW today.
The company’s headquarters is in Munich, Bavaria and they also own the likes of MINI and Rolls-Royce, although the latter is still run in the UK, which is where the premium vehicles are also built.
As for the current BMW model range, their names have not changed in years, although their design has significantly. They have also added some new models over the years to cater for trending markets, such as SUVs.
Even though BMW is considered to be more of a premium brand when compared to the likes of Ford and Renault, they are not without their issues, and so in some cases certain models have to be recalled. One of the most recent was due to the Takata airbag problems.
We know that many of you have a BMW that has been causing you a few issues, and so we ask that you share them in the comments section below, who knows, maybe one of our readers will be able to help you.
