Bimmer culture is the existence of luxury cars with a design that goes well with the years, not in harmony with the unisex (non-gender) trend of the competitors. Customers who choose BMW, even women, are lovers of an unobtrusive but luxurious car. It shows not only the outside beauty but also the inner strength.

BMW’s “simple” task is to create a car that is liberal but elegant, sporty, high-class, high-performance but does not forget the top comfort and most importantly, the ultimate driving experience.
