Very nice. Although very popular, I am not a fan of black rims and am looking for Blue or Mineral white sedans.

When you are coming from a Montego Blue, it is hard to go back:

So I have a question about a few M3 out in Atlanta with low miles and good price, for example: http://www.gwinnettbmw.com/detail-20...-11763291.html

From what the salesperson told me, they were 'demo' cars used for traing at a BMW facility, hence the low mileage. Could these have been used at the BMW Performance Driving school in SC? If so, I would be skittish on these because they would have been tracked by 'non-owners' and maybe not even run through a proper break-in.

Any thoughts?

I would avoid all demo cars by all means, but that is just my opinion

That is my uneducated opinion, but I was wondering if anyone had an opposing view.

Why is it uneducated opinion?? Please search on what does "demo" mean before posting such a comment.

The problem is that I don't know how to read some of these carfax histories to know if it is a simple 'demo' car, a manufacturer/exec car, or used in the Performance Center in SC. When I spoke with the salesperson, her response was basically,"Yeah, something like that."

There are already a few opinion threads on demo cars in general. I just don't know how to differentiate the differences if the salesperson has no idea.

Spazdoc,

I know that if the dealer pulls the vehicle history from the key, the sheet will say DEMO if it was a demo.
