I don't think it adversely affects private resale. The point being that the right buyer will value the Dinan tune and pay a premium for it.

However it may diminish trade in value because it precludes CPO and dealers justify their mark ups by CPO. Further a dealer lacks the pricing discipline to get the Dinan premium because they want to move it to the first punter on the lot, and won't wait for the enthusiast to come along.
