Good point.

Dealers can "pre-enroll" a car into the CPO system indicating they intend to sell it as a CPO, but if they transfer/sell the car to another dealer the CPO never takes effect and the car IS NOT a CPO. ONLY the dealer retailing the car to the new owner can CPO the car. That dealer enrolls the car into the CPO program and pays the CPO enrollment fee to BMWNA. It is a REQUIREMENT of the CPO program that the selling CPO dealer provide to the buyer a completed copy of the four page CPO Inspection Checklist properly completed and signed by dealership personnel.

Now I'm regretting encouraging you to keep moving forward with this transaction. From what you have said it sounds very doubtful to me that you have a car that has been properly enrolled as a BMW CPO vehicle. One thing you might do it go to another dealership and have their service department bring up the vehicle records in the computer system and see if it reflects that your car has the CPO warranty. If it is properly enrolled in the program every BMW dealer in the country will be able to tell it by looking at the computer records.

It was probably a transfer from one Sonic store to another.
