I did all the negotiating over the phone with the understanding that I would get to inspect the car in person before having to do any paperwork. I bought it from a BMW dealership as a CPO so I was fairly confident that it was a good buy. When I got there I took it out for a spin, found it to be as described, and the deal went through.

In a sense, they were taking an equal risk on me. The negotiations included a trade-in value for my previous vehicle that they had never laid eyes on either. I guess you could say we had a mutual understanding that their car was as described and my trade was too. Once we both verified that we were getting what we expected, we did the paperwork.
