News: BMW – HONOURED MARQUE AT THE 2016 GOODWOOD FESTIVAL OF SPEED

BMW as a marque is a bit of a strange one, especially amongst the everyday consumer. More so than perhaps any other brand, BMW, in MotorMartin’s experience, would appear to be a marque that brings about extreme reactions. People aspire to owning a BMW, neighbours know that you’re doing well for yourself when you pull up in your new car yet, there are also those amongst us that allow (perhaps) their envy to get the better of them, BMW are a popular brand to not let out of a junction for example. And yet BMW are recognised the world over … Continue reading News: BMW – HONOURED MARQUE AT THE 2016 GOODWOOD FESTIVAL OF SPEED
