There’s recently been a story of a new BMW 1 M which was flogged a bit on video during a PDI (pre-purchase inspection) at a dealer. The owner paid $10k over list value and wants that portion back after discovering he purchased the car in the video. I think this is ridiculous. I don’t think anyone would sell their car for less just because there was a video made of it being driven aggressively. No way. Why? Because it’s every bit as good as it was before you hit the loud pedal. It’s a performance car built for track use and lets not forget that it even has a warranty. You know what you would have done in a new 1 M on a test drive? Yea, stuffed that loud pedal to the floor so shut the hell up and enjoy your masterpiece of German engineering.
