New BMW -- with ~300 miles?

Hey all,

Looking at an M550 - which has just under 300 miles on the OD.

Im sure thats 300 miles that were NOT driven like an old person

Its spec'ed very well for me, dealer is moving ~13% off MSRP. But i wonder if im headed for future problems taking it as is with miles like this. Any opinions?

Pretty simple, in my opinion, it's being sold for a reason.

Is that a 2020? Ask the dealer who put those miles on it (test drives, demo, loaner, unhappy owner,etc). Do they have a carfax?

Not an I-got-ya, just an afterthought.

No, you're right, not a gotcha but needed correcting.
To the OP, find out what it is being sold as like stated above.
