From my BMW source.... new emission regulations officially begin on 1st September this year. Most petrol models don’t meet these new regulations and manufacturers will be heavily fined if they sell non compliant models built now and sold after 1st Sep as brand new but they can be sold as pre-reg/nearly new/demo/used. To prevent the fine, BMW/MINI are registering brand new built stock to sell as pre-reg and will be offered with low APR. BMW M3s/M4s are the first to be sold this way with a very tempting 0% APR offer.

Diesel models continue to be compliant but new BMW/MINI diesel engines being built now are receiving Ad Blue tanks.
