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.
Both are right. It costs a lot of money for the CPO warranty on M cars, but if it isn't CPO you don't have any assurances of the true condition of the car unless you have it third party examined by someone such as Auto Check or someone like that. Just a suggestion.
