BMW Brand FAQs

BMW letters stand for Bayerische Motoren Werke GmbH.

The nickname “Beamer” comes from Great Britain – and originally served to distinguish it from a British manufacturer whose motorcycles bore the nickname “Beezer”.

The BMW Logo features inverse Bavarian colors since it was the company’s home state. The reason for this inverse order of blue and white in the BMW logo was the local trademark law at the time, which forbade the use of state coats of arms or other symbols of sovereignty on commercial logos.

BMW was created in 1917 by the Munich firm Rapp-Motorenwerke. The company was incorporated into Knorr-Bremse AG in 1920 before being founded again as BMW AG in 1922. It was the successor of Bayerische Flugzeugwerke AG, founded in 1916. 1916 is therefore considered BMW’s founding year.

  • BMW Maintenance Program: Covers all factory-recommended maintenance services – from oil, filter, and fluid changes to new brake pads and discs, spark plugs, and wiper blades.
  • BMW TeleService: Part of the BMW ConnectedDrive services included with your vehicle – can contact a BMW center when maintenance is required.
  • Roadside Assistance: Ready when you are – 24 hours a day, 365 days a year, for the first four years. And with no mileage restrictions, you can feel free to go wherever the road takes you.
  • BMW Warranty: BMW warranty protection for the first four years or 50,000 miles.

The first key to the meaning of the BMW logo is its colors: white and blue are the colors of the State of Bavaria in Germany, home of BMW. A 1929 BMW ad depicts the BMW emblem, complete with the four colored quadrants, in a spinning airplane propeller. The interpretation that the BMW logo represents a propeller has endured ever since.

BMW warranty protection is for the first four years or 50,000 miles.

Yes, BMW offers comprehensive, expert care through a variety of Ultimate Care plans. Extend your coverage by up to four years – and save up to 30% on included maintenance by paying in advance.

Benefits of the BMW Warranty Extended Service Contracts include:

  • 100% original BMW replacement parts
  • 24-hour BMW roadside assistance
  • Covered repairs performed at an authorized BMW facility by trained BMW technicians
  • Protection of your vehicle’s performance and resale value
