Most auto enthusiasts know BMW automobiles and motorcycles - they're some of the most stylish performance sports cars and have been turning heads since Bayerische Motoren Werke AG (originally Rapp Motorenwerke) was founded by Austiran engineer Franz Josef Popp in 1916. BMW initially specialized in aircraft engines, then branched out to motorcycles in 1923 and finally its first automobile in 1928. World War II put a hold on BMW parts and automobile production, and the company fell into financial difficulties. Fortunately BMW's successful licensing and redesign of the Italian Iso Isetta micro car in 1959 injected the company with much-needed capital, and Bayerische Motoren Werke AG has been enjoying success ever since. BMW even purchased the MINI and Rolls-Royce Motor Cars brands.
Emblazoned on most BMW parts, the BMW roundel logo is instantly recognized the world over. Its meaning is up for debate however; some say it harkens back to the BMW's early aircraft engine days and portrays a white propeller spinning in a blue sky. More likely the roundel evolved from a Rapp Motorenwerke logo combined with the blue and white colors of the Bavarian flag. Other badges found on BMW automobiles include the Alpina logo (ultra-luxury cars based on BMW chassis) and the race-ready factory M moniker, which is found on M3 / M5 / M6 cars built with BMW parts from its high performance tuner division.

Drivers searching online for cheap BMW parts will often turn to used BMW parts, however that's a false economy. High-mileage used BMW parts are usually just as worn out as the part being replaced, which means you're paying a lot for a BMW auto part that will only last a very short time. If you're on a budget a better solution is to use brand-new BMW aftermarket parts, many of which are manufactured to the same specifications as BMW OEM parts, but don't have the licensed logo and thus are less expensive.
