Our BMW 3 Series Singapore Parallel Imported (PI) model collection consists of the latest arrivals that are now available in Singapore – VAC-Ready.
Discover a wide range of the latest BMW 3 Series arrivals like the BMW 320i M Sport Saloon.
Purchase with peace of mind from one of the most established and largest readily-stocked premier BMW 3 Series dealers in Singapore today. Established in 1989, with over 200+ 5-Star reviews on Facebook and Google.
The epitome of a modern sports sedan, the latest BMW 3 Series arrives as an executive saloon with its compelling performance and innate sophistication. For 2021, it showcases a refreshed styling, brand new interior design language, and a new set of engines.
A reliable 2.0-litre BMW TwinPower Turbo Inline 4 engine powers this executive saloon and produces 156 horsepower and a maximum torque of 250Nm. Mated to an 8 - Speed Steptronic transmission, it allows the vehicle to accelerate from 0 to 100k/h in a span of 8.4 seconds.
In terms of aesthetics, the BMW 3 Series is much sharper and bolder than ever. Alongside its distinct appearance, it also boasts high-tech features. It includes the BMW Live Cockpit Professional, BMW Digital Key, and Automatic Start/Stop Function.
BMW 3 Series Special Features
Futuristic HD displays and an immense sense of space – the ambient lighting exhibits this distinctive atmosphere inside the 3 Series spectacularly at night.
The indirect LED light accentuates the trim’s elegant lines and goes one step further: the light presents the interior as a work of art in striking colour schemes.
Automatic Climate Control
For a more personalized driving experience, the 3-zone Automatic Climate Control allows both the driver and the passenger to set a specific temperature that they prefer in their zone.
Each zone has its temperature control section on the centre control interface, providing all the occupants with excellent comfort during their trip.
Electric Seats with Memory Package
This executive saloon also showcases electric seats with Memory Package, which offers enhanced comfort and support during powerful cornering.
Adjusting the seat height and backrest has never been made this easy—the memory function stores settings for the seats that secure optimal comfort throughout a vigorous drive.
Sport Leather Steering Wheel
Trimmed in a black leather rim with black stitching, the 3-spoke steering wheel brings extra style and enhanced grip to the driver.
It comes with multifunction technology that allows you to control audio, Bluetooth, and cruise control without taking your hands off the wheels.
Automatic Start/Stop Function
A piece of technology that improves the BMW 3 Series’ fuel efficiency, the Automatic Start/Stop function switches off its engine when not in use.
Simply place your BMW into neutral and remove your foot from the clutch to enable the feature in a traffic jam or stop-and-go traffic.
The BMW 3 Series features an active driving assistant with a collection of driving assistance and collision avoidance technology.
It includes Lane Departure Warning, Lane Change Warning and Front Collision Warning with Brake Intervention and Crossing Traffic Warning. This cluster of driver assistant provides you with peace of mind in every adventure you take.
BMW 3 Series Interior
Honed every inch into perfection, getting inside the cabin of the BMW 3 Series emanates pure luxurious vibes.
It comes well-equipped with BMW’s latest technology, such as the BMW Live Cockpit and ambient lighting that gives off a posh vibe at night, making every time behind the wheel an absolute pleasure.
Storage Compartment Package
Under the central armrest is another likeable compartment where you can hide your wallet or other valuable things.
Each door also has a bin broad enough to store a large water bottle and some fold-out trays you can access with the rear seat configuration.
Supported by the wireless CarPlay, you no longer need to worry about your smartphone’s battery life wherever you go.
By simply placing your smartphone (with Bluetooth and WLAN switched ON) on the Qi charging tray below the dashboard, you can have your phone recharged in no time. At the same time, you can use the CarPlay feature while charging.
BMW Live Cockpit Professional
BMW’s cutting edge innovations are already a standard for its vehicles, even with its brand new infotainment, navigation and multimedia system.
This system highlights the BMW Live Cockpit Professional that provides a touch-capable, high-resolution control display, complete with its fully-digital instrument panel.
To keep your child safe and secure, it also features an ISOFIX Package that includes an ISOFIX anchor with two lower loops per position to which you can attach a child’s seat.
A top tether anchor use also comes practical when the child seat is in the forward-facing position.
BMW Digital Key
The BMW is the world's first automaker to provide customers with a wireless car key on their iPhone in collaboration with Apple.
The digital car key on your compatible iPhone enables you to lock, unlock, and even launch your BMW conveniently and safely with guaranteed maximum security and protection.
Exterior of the BMW 3 Series
With a bold, modern kidney grille and angular LED lights, the BMW 3 Series exudes the perfect blend of attitude and sophistication.
Its 17-inch alloy wheels give it a more aggressive stance, and they perfectly complement the exterior's flowing chrome lines, which emphasize its sporty character.
The BMW 3 Series arrives with the up-to-date BMW Parking Assistant. The Parking Assistant with Rear View Camera is capable of navigating even the most challenging parking spaces.
While the machine handles the steering, you retain control of the accelerator, gears, and brakes.
17-inch Light Alloy Wheels
The 17-inch light-alloy wheels in V-spoke-style adds an edge to the already athletic overall look of the 3 Series. These high-performing wheels complete the sporty character of this sedan and support its powerful performance.
Upfront, the LED headlights immediately draw attention on the road with the executive saloon’s already striking front face design.
The LED headlights display a brighter illumination, which further enhances the prominent and dynamic nature of the BMW 3 Series.
The BMW 3 Series now offers an automatic tailgate that is electronically accessible, providing a convenient way of loading and unloading your baggage.
You can close and open your tailgate with just a touch of the button in your vehicle key or release the handle on the tailgate.
Run-flat Tire Technology
BMW’s run-flat tyre technology aims to keep you moving even in the case of a puncture. It features an assisted sidewall that will hold the weight of your car when the air pressure drops.
It gives you the ability to continue driving at a reduced speed until it becomes more convenient and safer to stop and get your tyre repaired.

BMW 3 Series Frequently Asked Questions
Here are some of the most common questions and answers regarding purchasing a new BMW 3 Series from us.
What is VAC-Ready?
VAC stands for ‘Vitas Approval Code.’ It is a document issued by the Land Transport Authority that certifies that a car has passed all regulatory tests, inspections and is ready for registration to be used on Singapore’s roads. In the Parallel Importer industry, this code gives peace of mind to buyers as it ensures that the exact vehicle that buyers are purchasing has already undergone testing for approval.
This also means that the vehicle is physically available and ready in Singapore for delivery. All that’s left is to register the COE, and it can be immediately used on the roads.
When you purchase from any parallel importer in Singapore, it’s important you check that they have VAC-Ready stock, so it cuts down on any waiting time or uncertainty.
Some parallel importers in the past, unfortunately, have been unable to deliver vehicles, or in worst-case scenarios, shut down and walked away with customer deposits.
We register and deliver well over a hundred new vehicles every month and have had a 100% delivery rate for the past 30 years since 1989.
What does ‘Parallel Import’ Mean?
Parallel imported cars are vehicles shipped straight from their brand’s origin country and then sold in other countries. Parallel Importers, also known as PIs, are alternate retailers and dealers of various brands of vehicles. Often Parallel Importers carry a wide selection of brands and models.
In terms of operations, there’s little difference between a parallel importer and an authorized distributor. Both entities import cars from the same countries or from where the manufacturer is located.
Vehicles from authorized distributors tend to cost more as they carry a higher overhead than parallel importers – these overheads include fancy showrooms, a much larger payroll, advertising and media costs, and more.
The cars themselves typically don’t differ in terms of specifications and options. Here at VINCAR, we offer vehicles directly from their origin countries at competitive prices while passing on significant customer savings. We can also provide and tailor flexible financing plans, services, and value-added options to owners while ensuring we can provide competent technical support for our customer’s cars.
Unlike Authorised Dealers, we are a lot more flexible in our approach to the type and brand of vehicle you wish to own under one brand experience.
Over 30% of new car purchases at VINCAR every year are existing customers looking to upgrade or replace their vehicles, and we are happy to provide a hassle-free seamless experience every time.
What BMW 3 Series Models do you carry?
Models not listed here may not be readily available and will require some time to be brought into the country (30-45 days). If you are keen on a vehicle that’s not listed here, just ask us – and we’ll do our best glad to make it happen.
Can you bring in a car if it’s not listed in your BMW 3 Series Collection?
Just ask us, and we’ll do our best to see if you can import the vehicle of your preference.
We import hundreds of vehicles every month and are familiar with all customs regulations, documentation, approvals, logistics, restrictions, and registration procedures.
When can I expect to receive my car when I order it?
The fastest we have ever registered and delivered a new vehicle is within seven working days. This is assuming all LTA inspections, financing for passenger and vintage cars there, and insurance approvals can be processed without any delays.
The typical delivery period for most new car deliveries is within 10-14 days. If your preferred vehicle is not in Singapore yet, it may take between 30-45 days for it to arrive. Contact your appointed relationship manager or us for more details before booking your next vehicle.
I need a vehicle urgently from overseas, can you speed up the process?
Sure, we provide priority air-freight shipment for some vehicles regularly for some of our clientele. This service will incur additional fees. Contact your relationship manager for more details regarding delivery estimates.
Can you import a used BMW 3 Series from overseas for me?
Yes, we can. We can import in a used BMW 3 Series as long it is up to a maximum of 3 years old.
There are some regulations regarding importing used vehicles, primarily considering that there are shipping and customs costs – including a S$10,000 surcharge (by customs).
There is also a 20% excise duty for passenger and vintage cars on the vehicle’s cost. You may also need to pay compliance fees to ensure the vehicle passes LTA’s regulations. These may include tinted windows, unapproved strobes, fittings, etc.
I saw a car listed for sale on an overseas website in Japan / United Kingdom / Hong Kong etc. Can you help me import it in?
Yes, we can assist you with the purchase and import of the vehicle. We can confidently manage all customs documentation, processing, and logistic matters about the car being brought into Singapore. Please note a service fee will apply on top of the vehicle costs. Other fees may apply.
Contact us for a quotation about this service.
Can I pre-order a BMW 3 Series, which is not released yet?
Yes, we can. We can place your order on our priority list and purchase the first vehicle available (to your specifications) the moment it is made available.
Can I utilize a BMW 3 Series for private hire purposes (Grab Car Rental or Gojek)?
No, we do not have BMW 3 Series for Grab Car Rentals. We recommend that you visit our Grab Car Rental Page for more information and details about the type and model of vehicle you can utilize for Grab Car Rental usage.
Can I rent a BMW 3 Series for short-term purposes (from 1 day to 7 days etc)?
Unfortunately, at this time, we do not provide short-term rental services.
Can I lease a BMW 3 Series under my name (or company)?
Yes, we can. You can lease your next BMW 3 Series with use under your name or Corporate/company entity. Our Car Leasing programs are for a minimum of 12 months. Most car leases taken up by our clientele are between 12-36 months.
For Car Leasing requirements, please read more on our Car Leasing page.
What should I do if there is a problem (technical issue / global recall issue) with my car within the warranty period?
Just bring your BMW 3 Series back to us, and we will be able to repair or service it at our dedicated in-house servicing centre.
We also keep parts, components, and accessories – together with an experienced team of specialized mechanics, technicians, and operation managers to deal with any major safety recalls or service campaigns from BMW.
What should I do if my car breaks down or has an accident on the road?
Stay calm and don’t panic. You can call the support number available on the VINCAR decal located on your windshield’s left side. Our support team will be on standby 24/7 to provide you with the necessary roadside assistance and towing support.
Do you sell used/pre-owned BMW 3 Series?
Yes, we do. Check out our pre-owned section for a collection of pre-owned used cars.
Can I trade in my BMW 3 Series to VINCAR?
Sure, you can. We can provide a competitive trade-in value for your car. Just contact us and provide the necessary details.
Our team will be able to provide you with more details and information within a day.
What accessories will come with my BMW 3 Series?
Upholstery, fittings, and accessories can differ from model to model. We advise that you ask your relationship manager about the available options and accessories that come with your purchase. All items will be indicated clearly in your sales agreement.
Can you provide a 100% loan for your BMW 3 Series?
No. The maximum loan amount as per financing regulations set by the Monetary Authority of Singapore is 70% if the vehicle’s open market value is less than S$20,000 or 60% if the vehicle’s open market value is more than $20,000.
For more details, you can read this article “Rules for Motor Vehicle Loans.”
Can you provide a 10-Year financing loan tenure for your BMW 3 Series?
No. The maximum loan tenure is seven years for private passenger vehicles and up to 10 years for private hire vehicles.
Other dealers and parallel importers are offering Zero-Money Down, 10-Year financing, and services for their cars. Why can’t you?
As the saying goes, if it sounds too good to be true – it usually is. Some dealerships, especially newer and smaller parallel importers, often dangle enticing deals, discounts, and offers on social media to entice buyers to contact them.
Often such schemes lead to disappointment as the dealer may require a high down-payment amount or require the user to ‘top-up’ for COE or quote a COE amount that is not realistically biddable.
Here’s an example. A dealer advertises a car price that is $15,000 below standard market rates. After contacting the dealer – he/she will say that the expected COE price is expected to be at X amount (which is lower than the average), and at this point, you will be pressured to leave a deposit with the dealer to secure your booking at this ‘special’ price.
When the upcoming COE exercise is completed, and COE prices are nowhere near the promised rate, the dealer will ask you to top up more to register your car, and else you would forfeit your booking deposit. We have seen many such examples over the years by many unscrupulous individuals and companies.
Any advertisements you see on Social Media from other dealers promising 10-Year Financing and Zero money down are also a direct violation of the Monetary Authority Of Singapore (MAS)’s regulations on “Rules for Motor Vehicle Loans.”
I see similarly named car dealerships/parallel importers in Singapore. Are they related to you?
VINCAR Pte Ltd operates under one single brand name, with only one subsidiary (VINCAR Rental and Leasing Pte Ltd).
We are aware of other parallel importers who often set up Facebook Pages and advertisements with similar-sounding names and derivatives to capitalize on our brand name.
Unfortunately, this practice leads to confusion for new car buyers who get tricked into a bait-and-switch situation.
If you have previously contacted such entities, a quick way to check is to ask if ‘XXX’ company is named ‘XXX.’ If the salesman on the line refuses to answer, dodges the question, or asks you just to visit the showroom address – without providing the company’s name, do be wary.
If the showroom you have visited does not match the original brand name introduced to you, take it as a big red flag. If these companies are willing to mislead you to visit them with a different name, they will likely not be trustworthy with other affairs.
Can I test-drive a car before I commit?
For specific models and subject to vehicle availability, we may allow test drives. Please check with your relationship manager or contact us first.
What kind of warranty do I get?
All new vehicles sold by VINCAR by default comes with a 5-year or 130,000km mileage warranty – whichever comes first. Your vehicle’s warranty can be extended to 10 years, fully underwritten by III.
Please check with the sales agreement to see all terms and conditions regarding warranty and service details. All vehicles are serviced in-house at our dedicated car servicing centre located at 24 Leng Kee Road.
Does the warranty cover maintenance?
Typically, vehicle warranties do not cover maintenance fees as they are considered as two separate items. However, during our promotional periods, we may include complimentary service packages.
Check with our sales department for more information regarding active promotions or packages.
Can I purchase an extended warranty from VINCAR?
Yes, subject to terms and conditions. Do check in with our sales team to see what active extended warranty packages we have at the moment that we can assist you with.
Can you deliver the vehicle directly to my home or office address after purchase?
Yes, we can. Contact your sales representative for more details.
Where are your showrooms located?
We have showrooms in 3 locations across Singapore. Two of them are in the Leng Kee Location, 1 in the East (Ubi).
Our Flagship showroom is located at 24 Leng Kee Road, 159096.
Our Pre-Owned showroom is at 237 Alexandra Rd, The Alexcier, Singapore 159929.
