This isn't directed at you Rob since a lot of members on this forum have done the same thing. I just dont get it, I dont know.
Their previous car might be out of warranty for starters.
The price might also be just right to make the sale.

If he's going from an '08 to '13, then he'll not only be able to enjoy some new perks of the '13 M3 (the new iDrive for starters as the old one was just a disaster) but also enjoy a full warranty, including maintenance, and also be able to switch up the colors and features (6mt to DCT). Just personal preference and something you can do when you have $$ to spend on something you really like.

I was willing to trade my M5 in for a different color combo, new iDrive, full warranty instead of CPO, etc. if the price was right. I LOVED the car and didn't want to change it for another car, just 'tweak' it a bit.
