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.

I am curious about this. On various BMW forums I've seen people talking about buying out their lease at the end as a CPO and getting the CPO warranty. The rules above would sort of preclude this, would they not? Or are different rules applied to a lease buyout? Or is it just not possible to CPO your own lease buyout?
