New car, who dis?

We're living in a subscription generation — what would we do without our regular dosage of ice cream and Netflix? Riding on that wave is a brand-new subscription service that will really shake things up in the way you live (and ride). In their latest ingenious move, BMW has rolled out Access by BMW, a vehicle subscription service that provides members with flexible access to a diverse fleet of BMW vehicles through a single monthly subscription.

That means you no longer have to subject yourself to astronomical COE prices in Singapore, and can zip around in a new car model every month. Our island-state is the first in Asia, and second globally, to offer this service.

The BMW X1 is one of the models available on the subscription service

Prices start at $2,388 monthly for the BMW 118i, $3,388 for the BMW X3 sDrive20i, and $3,788 for the BMW 520iSport. More options on fleet and pricing are available on the Access by BMW website, before you can choose to sign up for a one-month or three-month subscription. Each subscription renews monthly unless you inform the Access by BMW team, with a notice period of seven days after the active subscription ends. The package includes unlimited mileage, maintenance and roadside assistance, taxes and insurance, and door-to-door delivery and collection at a location of your choice. What's more? You can pause between subscriptions if you need to, say, go away for three weeks in the Maldives.

The sleek interiors in the BMW X3

If you're sold on this lifestyle change and feel like a longer-term rental is more up your alley, Flow by BMW provides car rentals from a minimum of 18 months to a maximum of 60 months. Cash rebates are available after the 18-month period, which makes the scheme necessarily cost effective, as life with a beemer is infinitely more gratifying than one without.
