An $18K BMW is hardly a luxury car just because it comes from München, Bayern. A lot of BMW's are basic transportation in Germany.
It was deceptive that he didn't mention that he had another car before receiving the Toyota. It's possible he was having trouble with the BMW, or parts were too expensive to maintain, or insurance was too high, hence the reason for the sale.
