From July 1929 onwards, the first automobile with the white and blue insignia was produced on the basis of this model, the BMW 3/15 PS DA 2. At first glance hardly any different from the small Dixi, there were major changes on closer examination. The DA 2's body, built from the end of July that year, was wider and more spacious, with the running-boards deleted and was delivered by the Ambi-Budd company in Berlin. It resembled the French Rosengart 5 CV which was also produced under licence from Austin. A different radiator grille with the BMW emblem made the difference very clear at the front.

Technically, there were few changes except that the mechanical foot brake now worked on all four wheels and not only on the rear wheels, as on the DA 1. Inside this saloon, wind-up windows and adjustable seats were a modest contribution to comfort; at the rear there was a small luggage compartment. As well as the all-steel saloon, BMW at first offered another open touring car and an open two-seater based on this model. Other body versions followed in 1930/31.
