: They have very little inventory, but over in the corner of the lot I found a NEW 1998 528! For some reason (they either couldn't or wouldn't say), it has never been sold and is still considered new for loan and insurance purposes. Cashmere beige with beige leather, all options except sport package. This is a very unusual car, it might make sense for a cash buyer who swoops in and makes a great offer.
Maybe I'm wrong, but in Florida, when you find a year old model (almost 2 MY actually), it indicates the dealer has had to do something to the car. Why would he have to hold on to it that long??? Maybe I'm skeptical but if I saw one like that here, I'd say it was badly damaged somehow (maybe fell off the truck), and they repaired & repainted it.
