Has this pre-owned BMW been used in UDEs?

I'm currently looking at a used car and I got the CarFax. Unfortunately I found something that made me think this car was used for the BMW Ultimate Driving Experience tour nationwide.

It was originally registered in Woodcliff Lake, New Jersey and the original owner was a "corporate fleet". IIRC, aren't these signs of a UDE car?

One thing that dissuaded me from this thought was that the car is a manual transmission. I've been to a few UDE events and never came across a manual tranny before.

Sounds more like it was a BMWUSA employee car. All UDE cars were DCT or automatic.

Car makers have tons of "corporate fleet" vehicles. They're usually either employee take home cars, or kept on hand for when other exec types visit plants and headquarters. I don't see that as an automatic red flag.

A lot of the “corporate fleet vehicles” are service loaners. Most dealerships turn these over every six month. I doubt that this BMW was a service vehicle. Again it is because I have never seen a manual service loaner.
