Marking its seventh consecutive year at the top and the ninth consecutive year of increased sales, strengthened 8 Years aftersales service packages, the continuation of several strategic partnerships with major organisations and exciting launches were some of the factors fuelling the company’s ongoing growth supported by the utmost commitment and professionalism of its outstanding employees. The continued success of top-end models, mainly the BMW X5, X6, BMW 5 Series and BMW 7 Series largely drove the importer’s impressive sales results. 2016 was the first full-year of the new 7 Series, and 2017 was the first full-year for the new 5 Series models — while the all-new BMW M760Li xDrive with 610bhp was another high.
