Loaner Cars as CPO?

I've been searching around for CPO 328i's. With almost every dealer, I see there are so many "base" 328i's are listed with relatively low miles.

The ones I am talking about have:
-1 Owner in CarFax
-Commercially owned 1st owner
-Base model with 16" alloys, auto transmission.
-Relatively clean service records with on-time oil changes.

Could this be dealerships' loaner cars they are selling as CPO?

yes, this is very likely. Also lease returns as most people who lease 328's get them in base form to keep the payment low.

Yea, Most of these suppose to be lease returns. But these "base" 328's with "commercially registered" (seen on their CARFAX's) were getting me to wonder. Can BMW resell loaner car's like that?

commercial and lease mean the same thing. Seeing as the links you provided were 2008 cars I'd say they are lease returns as every loaner I've ever seen in the past 2 years is the newer 2009+ bodystyle. But to answer your question yes they can resell loaners.

Oh ok. So every lease car is registered as "commercial"?
