NIADA Certified Administrator ProGuard to Provide Protection Plan for 2018 BMW 330i SPT

Arlington, Texas (June 14, 2022) – The car up for auction to benefit the NIADA Foundation during the upcoming NIADA Convention and Expo is not just a gem – it’s a Certified gem.

The white 2018 BMW 330i SPT – featuring a sport package, a black interior and just 22,000 miles on the odometer – has now been certified by the NIADA Certified Pre-Owned program after undergoing a 200-point digital inspection from Carketa.

As part of the program, the vehicle comes with a three-month/4,500-mile vehicle protection plan from ProGuard Warranty, an NIADA Certified administrator.

ProGuard president and chief operating officer Dominic Limongelli said his company is “thrilled” to be a part of the benefit auction.

“Someone is going to win this beautiful vehicle while helping raise money for a great cause,” he said, “and having the added value of certification and a protection plan makes it even more of a prize for whoever places the highest bid.”

The BMW, donated by Manheim, will be auctioned off on the final day of the 76th annual NIADA Convention and Expo, coming up June 20-23 at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas.

Before the Convention, the vehicle will be on display at Manheim Nevada. When the Convention begins it can be found at the NIADA Dealer Lounge in the center of the Expo Hall, where the auction will be held at 2 p.m. Thursday, June 23.

The winning bidder will receive free vehicle transport to any location in the continental U.S., courtesy of ACERTUS.

All proceeds from NIADA’s 10th annual auto auction will benefit the NIADA Foundation, which coordinates the association’s commitment to charitable giving and education.

The previous nine benefit auctions have raised a total of $218,500 to support the Foundation’s initiatives. During last year’s NIADA Convention and Expo, Colorado dealer Mike Widhalm placed the winning bid of $22,500 for a silver 2010 Ford Mustang GT.
