Probably depends on the local/German laws, but my guess is they'd have to be repaired and then sold as technically used?
Incorrect. New cars are, I wouldn't say often, but damaged in transport. That's why they are inspected many times, during the build and during transit to the VPC. Cars can be repaired at any point in this process and still be considered new.

Of course, if the repair is to an extent that it might cause troubles down the road, that opens BMW up to lawsuits so those are likely handled differently.
