Dealers can unwind a new retail if under 500 miles. Also they may not have "punched" the retail yet if done immediately so it could have been easier to swap. Glad it worked out for you!

That's a good result for you. They knew they were at fault. Well, all's well that ends well.

Now, just think about what could have happened to the car in those long 9 miles. Damn, the car probably got some beating on a test race track near the factory in Germany as they were doing the quality assurance part.

I'd raise hell again and get a car with 0 miles. Or 300 yards max - only whatever it takes to park the car and drive onto the truck and then onto the boat. No more.

I had around 60 miles on mine since it had to be located and swapped from another dealer in the region. I guess I couldn't ask them to transport the vehicle by truck, so they probably have some guys drive it over from the other dealership and get a ride back by driving back the other swapped vehicle. In the past when I purchased vehicles I would have raised an eyebrow on this extra mileage, but since I am leasing this time and the lease miles start after 60 miles, I don't mind as much.

Mein Auto: 550 i
Sounds very familiar, I guess it happens a lot. I bought my car at BMW Morristown. I was set to buy a 2011 535 Black on black. I didn't check the odomoeter when I test drove it as they said it wa a new car. I isgned all the paperwork and the odometer stated 150 miles. When the salesperson went thru the the onboard functions, the odomoeter showed 4,000 miles on it!!! I raised a hell and a half. Dealer gave me a few options, and one of them being a great deal on a CPO 2011 550. The rest is history. It turned out the 535 was a manager's car but was never updated in the computer as such. Caveat Emptor

Thanks for your help.
Completely common for a dealer stock car to rack up 100 miles from test drives. Especially if the car has been in stock for a while. CAs have more fun cars to get their kicks in than a 528.
