Technically 21, but I had my CA drive it over from BMW Mississauga to BMW Autohaus so that added 50 or so (I didn't want to wait the weekend).

I found out after the fact that my dealer uses new cars for test drives instead of having demos.

So no it wasn't a demo, but yes it was used as one anyway.

You live you learn I suppose.

At my dealer here they have dedicated cars for test drive purposes, you can tell as they have custom plates "HAUS 1" "HAUS 2" etc... It would really irritate me to know that someone else has potentially kicked the crap out of a car which I bought with the assumption that it's brand new.

I would have been mega pissed if I purchased the car or intended on keeping it (it's a lease which I will be returning). I kick the crap out of it myself anyway, so it's not really too bad. I did find the explanation of the break in procedure from the dealer a bit of a joke though, given they have people test driving cars with under 100kms on them. I hammered the shit out of the car when I test drove it, it kind of sucks to realize that some poor guy/girl picked that up as new.

BTW.. that is the norm for BMW dealers to have dedicated demo cars. My dealer is unusual in that respect and I understand it is part of a dispute they are having regarding their dealer status with BMW.

When I placed my order, I asked to include in writing on the sales offer that the car should have no more than 15km on the odometer.

I am not sure if that has any legal consequences; however, the dealer delivered the car with 10km.

I will be doing this next time... although it might be equally cautious to buy the car from a dealer that doesn't use new cars as demos.

Now that I think about it, I have no idea how mine had 21km on it in the first place (before having it driven to my dealer by the CA). I went to look at it early on the day it came in and the thing still had the plastic on the hood, over the seats, etc... so thats somewhat odd that it didn't have something like 10km. Doesn't bother me either way but makes me curious, also the fact that my car has a Feb/06 build date and I'd also like to know where it's been between March or so and when I took delivery in August. Someone must have been joyriding in it for about 2km a month while it was sitting in storage somewhere
