I've laid out how this ultimately negatively affects the end user who actually wants to own the car. If you disagree with that logic, that is one thing, but that's the logic I am running with. So given that logic, do you think that's a wise end result for a car company that is trying to build brand relationships? The more restrictive measures are less bothersome because the logic actually follows that the party that is negatively affected is the flipper. The dealership doesn't sell above MSRP, so they don't get to take advantage, and the flipper cannot flip.Not sure I follow on why more restrictive measures are less bothersome to you. You could just keep your car for a year or not buy at all if your plan is to flip. I don’t think the manufacturer exists to make money for people interested in flipping cars. They are trying to build brand relationships.
To put this in real terms, I purchased my 5BW on Cars and Bids. I placed an order with the dealership (for MSRP) in Oct 2021 my position in the queue has not changed since then. I found a car with [roughly] the same spec up for auction and jumped on it. I paid above MSRP because I wanted the car now, and am still not sure my dealership order will ever pan out. So in a world where the OP stipulations existed for my car, I would have gotten screwed out of a warranty, just for wanting the car and paying for it. This is VERY poor brand building.
