That is the used car market 101.
Most new car/big dealers will not hold on to anything over 4 years and with over XXXXXX amount of km's, regardless of car and condition.
So true. Once he told me, "we put them up for sale in a bidding war with other dealers", I knew what I was in for haha. My buddy was buying a 2012 328I coupe, so I just came with him anyway. Btw do fresh trade ins come with any service records or nah?
