Count All of the Options

Posted in BMW Dealer

PARIS, FRANCE - SEPTEMBER 30: Paris Motor Show on September 30,Looking for which vehicle you should purchase you taking into account a lot of different things, who makes it, how long will it last, does it get good gas mileage, how many cup holders does it have, the list goes on and on. These are all relevant questions and need to be considered but what if you could make those choices about a single vehicle and have it built to suit what you want and need? It is not an impossibility, in fact, at Otto’s BMW in PA this happens every day. Each one of the new BMW models can be ordered and customized to suit you. You know that BMW will be making your car  so you know it will last; one hundred years of history do not happen because you have an unreliable product. As far as gas mileage goes you have a choice between the TwinPower Diesel or the TwinPower Petrol engine. Both get great gas mileage (yes, even the diesel) and you have the option of driving in Eco Pro Mode that will get you up to a twenty percent increase in fuel efficiency. Now, as far as cupholders go, if you want more you will have to buy a sedan or SUV because the coupe models just do not have very many. (The question about cup holders refers to a study that was conducted to see what characteristics women consider when they are purchasing a new automobile. The study concluded that the number one thing women look for is the number of cup holders. We have a feeling this study was biased but it is enjoyable to poke fun at it!) There are a lot of other options that are available on the wide variety of BMW models at Otto’s BMW. Come by and let their staff help you pick one out!

All in the Family

Posted in BMW Dealer

Pre Owned Car-stampWhen you go to purchase a vehicle it is very important to consider who you are making this big purchase from. A lot of dealerships will gladly sell you whatever rolls on to their lot with little thought for how it will affect you long term.  Otto’s BMW in Pennsylvania takes a different approach; before they sell you a vehicle that was owned by someone else, they take the time to check each vehicle to see if it meets certain standards before it is put up for sale. There are several classes that a used BMW may fall into, Certified Pre Owned Elite, Certified Pre Owned or Pre Owned. Each category is more exclusive than the last, starting with Pre Owned. Because Otto’s BMW takes the time to screen every vehicle so their customers know exactly what they are buying. This is a very uncommon practice in the automotive dealership community but a practice that sets Otto’s BMW apart none the less. You may be wondering why they bother to go through all of this extra effort. The answer is simple they have the philosophy that they if treat every customer like a member of the family then they will have that customer for life. This notion of treating customers like family is simple for the people at Otto’s BMW because their business is family owned and operated. On any given day you might find up to three generations of Otto’s family working at the dealerships. Their philosophy must be working as they have been in business for over forty years and show no sign of slowing down. As Otto’s family grew, so did his dealerships which now include multiple large lots. When you are ready to purchase your next automobile let the people of Otto’s take care of you and welcome you to their family.

More Than One Engine to Love

Posted in BMW Cars

winter driving - snowy country roadWe are almost out of the cold of winter but we still seem to be getting blasted with arctic temperatures, snow and ice. When will it end?! It is sad to say that a lot of automobiles are just not making it through all of the rough weather Mother Nature is throwing at us this year. If you are ready to say good bye to your failing vehicle now is the time to head to Otto’s BMW near Chadds Ford and buy an automobile that will make it through. “But isn’t BMW a luxury brand? Surely those cars will not make it through the rough winter weather!” You could not be more wrong! Yes, BMW is a luxury brand but it also has one hundred years of German engineering under the hood of each and every one of its vehicles. This notion of powder puff luxury brands has never applied to BMW, and never more than right now. BMW now offers the TwinPower Turbo Diesel engine or the TwinPower Turbo Petrol engine in every one of their models. These engines have a crazy amount of power and strength. The diesel has incredible towing capabilities and the petrol is so fuel efficient, without sacrificing get up and go, that it will make your head spin. Every vehicle in the BMW line up is beautiful on the outside and strong on the inside. A BMW will get you through the rest of this seemingly endless winter (thanks Phil!) and have you ready for your road trips this spring and summer! To check out these awesome engines and test drive one for yourself, head to Otto’s BMW. Their fantastic staff will show you the best engines that German engineering has to offer. Make the trip sooner than later, you never know when Mother Nature will strike again.

Love a Diesel Engine

Posted in Used BMW

IAA 2013Is it wrong to love a diesel engine. We do not think so, so long as it is the TwinPower Diesel engine from BMW. This is not your ordinary diesel engine. It is a fuel efficient model that also happens to be Turbo charged. Diesel engines have long had the reputation as having terrible emissions, being gas guzzlers and just being loud. The BMW diesel is not like that at all. Its CO2 emissions are just a hair higher than its petrol sister but you get more towing capacity. TwinPower Diesel engines also come equipped to function in Eco Pro Mode, this provides an extra twenty percent efficiency in fuel consumption.  Now as for the noise – some drivers find it to be really obnoxious when sharing the road with someone driving a diesel engine. Those engines are just louder overall, but here is where BMW worked some engineering magic. When driving a BMW diesel or riding in one, you really do not notice an engine any louder than a petrol engine. However, if you would like to hear the roar of your BMW diesel you can as all you have to do is adjust the driving dynamics of the engine via a switch in the cockpit. You will then have the experience of driving the diesel you love. The choice for a TwinPower Diesel or TwinPower Petrol engine is available on most BMW models. (Not so much on the Coupes but those are more made for sport driving where a petrol engine is more practical.) If you are interested in hearing, or not hearing, a BMW diesel engine, head down to Otto’s BMW near Kennet Square. Their friendly staff will show you what makes a BMW diesel so wonderful and let you take one for a test drive. Stop by today!

Reasons to Love Otto’s Mini

Posted in BMW Cars

VALENCIA, SPAIN - DECEMBER 7 - A Yellow 2011 Mini Cooper D at thWe often find ourselves reflecting on all of the things we love in the month of February; it is the month of Valentine’s Day after all. You might think back to a special dance in high school, a first kiss on a front porch. Maybe a first date with the person who ended up being your spouse. Some may think of an afternoon spent with their dad working on the family automobile or a morning spent at the beauty parlor with their mom. We like to think over the history of Otto’s BMW in PA because we like to reflect on just how far we have come. Otto’s was originally an auto body shop until a fateful day when a gentleman came in suggesting that Otto’s become a BMW dealer. Since that day and over the last forty years, Otto’s BMW has grown into more than was ever imagined by the humble immigrant who started that auto body shop. With all of the growth that Otto’s has seen moves were made to bigger and better dealerships and lots and eventually lead to the expansion to multiple dealerships and lots. You can now visit Otto’s BMW, Otto’s Approved and Otto’s Mini to purchase a vehicle. All of the dealerships are great but what makes Otto’s Mini special is that it sells Mini Coopers almost exclusively. There are a wide selection of Mini Coopers on the lot and if you can not find exactly what you are looking for, you can order one to your personal specifications. And since it is an Otto’s Dealership you will be greeted with a warm smile and a handshake and their staff will treat you like a member of the family they have not had the pleasure of seeing for ages. Being at any one of the Otto’s BMW dealerships feels just like home.
