that sounds right, b/c the dealer then would resell the car as a CPO, if they so choose. The new buyer wouldn't take the balance of the previous owner's warranty, they just take the new CPO terms, subject to BMW's own CPO conditions (e.g. BMW won't put a CPO tag on cars older than "x" years or higher than "y" miles, etc.)
