That seems next to impossible...

And to clarify, you said that if they're not selling out of their allocations, they're less likely to sell for a small profit since they'll be using up one of their spots. I'm not sure I'm following this part. If a dealer is selling outside of allocations, why is that using up a spot?

A dealer gets X allocations / month and they can't sell above their allocation.
Yes, for example dealers get only 1 or 2 M235 allocations per month at the moment so, most likely if you go to the dealer and want one, unless you have put a deposit already you will have to wait for the next untaken allocation.

Once they start selling out of allocations it won't be using one of their spots.. but right know BMW won't let dealers sell out of allocations cause there is too much demand
