Debating which used BMW sedan to drive around Newark? Given the excellent deals on used BMW 5 Series and used BMW 3 Series models at Richard Catena Auto Wholesalers, you’re in luck. This is especially true because both lines:

  • Boast used models from the sixth generation
  • Feature overhauled dashboards that prove intuitive for drivers
  • Provide an extensive selection of engines


Consider these differences as you decide between a used BMW 5 Series and a used BMW 3 Series.
