If you just graduated or you're graduating soon, then you are probably looking for any way that you can to save money. You have to pay for your room, books, food, board, classes, and so much more, so why not save a little when it comes to buying the vehicle you need to get your life started?

This is why your local BMW Chicago dealer is so happy to bring our customers the BMW College Graduate Program, which can help those who are eligible save when they purchase a new or certified pre-owned BMW*.
