BMW X3 for Sale in Mombasa
BMW X3 Rear to Front View

These are average prices from BMW X3 dealers in Nairobi, Mombasa, Nyeri, Kisumu, Eldoret, and other cities.   

These prices could appreciate or depreciate depending on various factors that include the car’s mileage, its maintenance, condition, and where you buy it.  

Let’s get one thing clear, the features and specs of this car are the same, but the prices are uniquely different. This is because every dealer has a reason as to why they quote that price.

For example, a Used BMW X3 for sale in Kenya by owners will offer a lower price than what the market is quoting.  

It feels like a good deal but what you forget is that this car has been used heavily on the Kenyan roads.  

As a result, this car suffers from major mechanical problems and thus reduces its value.  

Instead of landing such a raw deal, opt to buy a clean car from the Japanese market that is not doctored in any way.

If you do so, you will end up with a higher quality car than the second-hand BMW X3 for sale in Nairobi, Mombasa, Nyeri, and all the other towns.

BMW X3 review

Here are some reviews from our past customers: 

Khan K. 

“I think this is a great car!  It’s comfortable on rough roads and remains smooth all the way.  The 3.0L diesel is swift and very smooth. The car is generally speedy and efficient for the kind of errands I run.”

Jojo M.

“I have four tall grownup kids in college, and sometimes traveling with them in a small car was very uncomfortable. This car offered us all the comfort we need when traveling to Mombasa for our holiday.  We no longer have to hire out a car. Oh, and the boot space is large enough to carry all our luggage.”  

Amani W. 

“Above everything, I love the controls and the infotainment of this car, not forgetting the sleek interior finishing on the seats and the colors that BMW chose for the interiors. If you are a colorful person like me, you will appreciate that the interior does not come in standard black colors.  This is a car for keeps!”  

Omondi J.

“This is one of the best machines I’ve ever owned!  Fast, comfortable, and good driving position. Overtaking is easy and fast without any noise. I am much of a highway driver, and I can attest to this car being able to drive at high speeds. I am waiting eagerly for the expressway to try out its maximum speeds.” 

Leila K. 

“Just over ten months now of owning this car has been pure joy for me.  I have made lots of journeys to my shags, and each time this car surprises me how easy it works its way on the rough roads.  In the mud, its stable four-wheel drive has stood the test of time!  All-round a great car!”

Common Questions We Get About the X3

Here are some of the commonly asked questions from our customers

1. What’s New for the 2021 BMW X1 For Sale in Kenya?

BMW has upgraded this newer version with some standard features like the Android Auto smartphone connectivity and the SiriusXM satellite radio.  

All the new models come with the Active Driving Assistant package, among many other features.

2. Is the BMW X1 2024 Model Expensive to Maintain?

Maintenance and repair costs for this model are averagely priced.  If you undertake timely maintenance, then it will not cost you too much money.  

But if you fail to service this car when it’s supposed to, be ready to part with a considerable amount of money.

3. Why Are Used BMW X3 For Sale in Kenya by Owners so Cheap?

One reason why used BMWs are cheap is that they are used, and the owners are trying very hard to get a buyer.  

Therefore the supply becomes high and the demand low, making the owners lower their prices to attract more buyers.

We advise you to keep away from old used BMW of over 8-year and instead buy a clean one.  

4. How Often Should I Replace the Tires?

The replacement of tires depends on where you drive your car.  If you are used to going off-road, your tires will wear out faster than driving on the highway.  

Every tire is expected to last a certain number of miles. But you should always keep an eye for signs of wear, tears, imperfections, or low pressure.  

If you notice any tears that reach the wear bars, it’s time for new tires.

5. Is a Mercedes Better than a BMW?

The Mercedes-Benz S-Class is one of the highest performing luxury cars in the market today. But the overall winner of convenience, style, and performance is BMW.

6. How Often Does an X3 Need an Oil Change?

Most vehicles, including the BMW, go for about 5,000 miles before they get an oil change.  Always check the buyer’s manual for more specific information about this car.
