After thirty one years of BMW sales in the UK BMW has reach the two million car milestone. The first BMW sold was a 1980 E12 5 Series and in a fitting turn of events 1,999,999 cars later the two millionth car is also a 5 Series. Ken Haynes is the two millionth BMW owner taking home his 2012 F07 530d Gran Turismo.

When asked about owning the two millionth BMW Ken had this to say -
Im delighted to find out Im the two million man for BMW. The BMW 530d Gran Turismo is the perfect car for me as I like the space, versatility and high standard specification. I run an engineering business under my own name and being able to have a luxury car that allows for large items in the boot is the perfect combination.

Over the lifetime of the 5 series BMW has produced more then 5.8 million world wide making it one of BMW's most popular cars. BMW is now looking forward to future milestones, with record sales for 2011 it won't be long until we're celebrating the three millionth BMW sold in the UK.
