It's a bad idea to just speculate. FUD.

Under California lemon law, there are a few qualifications:

The car must still be under warranty
The owner must have taken the car in for repair of the same problem four or more times through an authorized dealer
The car must have been inoperable for a total of 30 days (not necessarily consecutive)
4x misfire? Lemoned. Doesn't matter if it was Coil#5 1st, HPFP 2nd, Injectors 3rd, then another coil.

In the shop 32 days waiting on an HPFP? Lemoned. My Z4 was in the shop for 2 months.

Like I said, people use this crap as an excuse to get out of their car and get into a new one. Some people really do have legit concerns, but most don't. And honestly, Lemon Laws should be seriously reconsidered if the dealer provides a loaner car for the length of the repair, as they often do with BMW.

I would buy it.
