F30's 320d being used for the Olympics

I was wondering what happens to the 4000 plus cars being used to transport spectators, VIPs, sports and media personel over the Olympics. Over 500 of these happen to be F30 320d if I am correct and the majority of the rest are other F30/3 series cars. Once the Olympics are over do these just get sold of to a car rental company or at BMW approved used dealerships? Just wondering what the negative aspects of this could be for other F30 owners. I wouldnt be happy seeing them as minicabs for sure

Any inputs???

Garage List
One could be sold as "One careful owner, never raced or rallied... driven for hundreds of miles at 10mph!"
