My point is, regardless of the number of miles on the car, if the car has sustained certain types of damage, a BMW dealer cannot CPO the car.
One can take a risk and assume that a dealer probably wouldn't keep an un-certifiable car on his lot. Or, a used car buyer can eliminate that risk by simply asking why the car is not certified. The way I look at it, it doesn't hurt to ask.
