Interesting article:
http://www.autonews.com/article/2016...s-dealer-bonus

Article claims this was done to "pay for a new dealer bonus."

The article further claims:
"Starting in April, dealers who meet BMW's brand standard, customer satisfaction and used-vehicle sales targets and hire Genius product specialists will be paid a monthly bonus of 1 percent of the sticker price of new vehicles sold, Ludwig Willisch, CEO of BMW of North America, said in an interview at the auto show here."

and
"The plan was reduced because dealers told management that more than half of their customers replace their cars after three years, so the longer program was unneeded, said Willisch"
