Much of the German brands reputation is based on reliability but also, plainly and simply, on quality. When you sit in your BMW you are not assaulted by flashing lights, over the top styling and annoying bulky plastic. You are simply surrounded by exactly what you need and in a way where everything is where it should be and everything works. It is this solidity and function over form that has led to BMW being one of the most successful car brands in the world.
