You have a nice car that is fun to drive. My advice is to keep it a long time and then sell or trade it. Average car is 11 years old for a reason because cars are much better now.
One thing is for sure BMWs don't do well without the periodic maintenance that they require.
CPO is nice but I never made use of CPO on any BMW I bought.
If you choose to sell it do so before the CPO is gone. I think if you trade it to any dealer including a BMW dealership the CPO part will not matter.

I do keep my BMWs a long long time so to me the depreciation never matters since my current M3 which I bought from the dealer is now approaching 16 years old but still runs just like new...
