didnt say that.

the 'rules' are that the dealer is supposed to make a CPO decision BEFORE putting the car on the sales floor. A cpo is supposed to be an enticement to buy, not an option a buyer can add. BMWNA has various tools to enforce this, and dealers can get into trouble....

I've been able to work out all kinds of things with people at car dealerships, but I make it clear that I am a trusted party in the process- getting stuff covered under warranty; brokering a non-standard transaction, etc. If they think their name will be published on the internet, you will get a vary narrow party line.

OE is Original Equipment: aka 'BMW Original Parts"; aka "What you buy at the BMW dealer with a BMW label on it"

OEM is Original Equipment Manufacturer... EITHER 'the company that made the OE part" or.... 'A part this is identical to the OE part, but is sold by the OEM under their own label,"

OEM is NOT WHAT YOU BUY AT THE DEALER.
