BMW Repair in Jackson, California

A Brief History of BMW

Plenty of Jackson, Pioneer, Valley Springs, Ione, and Amador County residents drive BMWs, and there’s a rich history behind the popular car brand. Originally an engine manufacturer, BMW released its first vehicle, a motorcycle, in 1923. Throughout the 1930s, BMW expanded its range to sports cars and larger luxury cars. The BMW 3/20, released in 1932, was the first BMW automobile designed completely by BMW. Four years later, BMW released its first four-door sedan, the BMW 326. 

After World War II, BMW resumed automobile production and released the BMW 501 in 1951. After some revisions, the car was re-released as the BMW 501A and resulted in a doubling of sales. In the mid 1950s, BMW bought a license to manufacture Issetas, an Italian “bubble car” that had become popular in Europe. More than ten thousand Issetas were sold in 1955 alone. However, for a few years BMW was unable to compete with its competitors and was nearing the point of bankruptcy. In 1960, the development program began for a new range of models, called the “Neue Klasse” (New Class) project, which is credited for saving the BMW company. BMW released New Class four-door sedans in 1962, officially establishing its identity as sports sedan producers. In 1968, production of the BMW M30 engine began, BMW’s first straight-six engine since World War II which would remain in production for 24 years. Four years later, the first generation of the BMW 5 series mid-size sedans were introduced to replace the New Class sedans. BMW’s first SUV, the X5, was introduced in 1999. Although different from its typical sports cars, the X5 sold very well and resulted in other SUVs being introduced in the coming years. We at Sterling Auto Repair in Amador County have been servicing BMW’s since 2011, so we can take care of your car, bumper to bumper.

I wanted to thank you for the service that your company provides. I appreciate the honest approach to what I need done now and what can be scheduled at a later time. I appreciate the flexibility in the scheduling, because you have seen that sometimes I need a service done now and you have always been willing to work my vehicle in if at all possible. Sometimes I need an Oil change done and need to wait for the vehicle and your service technician is made aware of that and everything is completed in a timely manner. The other item that I appreciate is the follow up email with pictures of items that are good or that may need to be addressed in the future. Thanks to you and your technicians for their great service. Michael S
