What is Buffer Launch Supply

This is listed on my order as an option (the last and one I don't recall choosing or being asked about):

998 Buffer-Launch Supply

What is it?

I found it listed as an option on a new car for sale at Baron BMW, a dealer in Kansas (via a Google search).

I shudder to think that it is a premium dollar amount added as a buffer due to short supply of cars at a new model's launch.

I suspect it indicates a car that was ordered without an end customer waiting for it, i.e. it was a car brought into the Country to bring stocks up ready for Launch.............. Worth checking the VIn to see if you can find a manufacturing date.

Ask the dealer. They may tell you more.

Are you sure it's not Buffet Lunch Supply? Maybe it's for deli meats and side salads for the dealership? You know, salesmen have to eat sometime.

That's reaching way out there......but you can't rule out everything.
