It's a sad indication actually... Loaner cars are typically excess stock they cannot sell immediately. They're typically entry-level 28i/30i cars, and infrequently 35i/40i. Many dealers also use the PHEVs as they get an immediate tax credit for punching the warranty and registration card.

My dealership uses a ton of X1, X2, X3, and GT cars. Let's be honest these are very much not desired.

But using a car like a X3M or in my case, a M340i, cars well north of $60,000 just shows that BMW cannot move this type of car either, which is surprising a bit. Maybe not, as these cars are designed to fit a niche market.
