The BMW Military Sales Program was set up nearly 30 years ago as a Nato `thank you` to U.S. forces serving in Germany. From this beginning the program has evolved into serving us military personnel stationed Globally. The program is sponsored directly by the BMW factory in Munich and offers BMW and MINI products in U.S. specification.
Pre-negotiated privileged pricing has been arranged for the program. These prices are set by the factory thus eliminating any `haggling` with a salesperson. Everybody pays the same price.
Although there is a vehicle stock pool to choose from most vehicles are special ordered to the requirements of the customer (keeping within the normal configurations offered by BMW in the U.S.A.). This can take a little time as there are waiting lists on all our vehicles.
We price it out and send you a Military Price quote. We can assist you with finance assessments from NFCU and Service Credit Union to help you plan ahead.
You let us know when and where you would like to take delivery.
You place an initial down payment - this allows us to book your order and the required production slot.

In the case of State Sales Tax it is impossible to list definitive criteria, as each individual state views both rates and liability differently. As a general rule you should expect to pay some form of tax upon first registration in the USA. However, as a military person you may qualify for exemption or if the vehicle has already been bought and owned out of state (sometimes for a specified time period) this may also fulfil the criteria for exemption. It’s always wise to try to obtain first hand information from the appropriate local office.
Neither Superior Motors MSP, nor its representatives will be responsible for any form of tax liability on automobiles imported into the USA. As is universally the case, tax liability rests with the individual and ignorance of the appropriate legislation will not be considered as grounds for exemption.
