If it were truly lemon law'ed, they would have to disclose it. That being said, when BMW see a problem car, and the owner demands a buy-back, they will often use "trade-assist" to make the problem go away before it becomes a lemon law issue. Most likely, the car was bought back from an unhappy customer (SMG failure?). Still, even if the car had many of the usual problems that we've been seeing (SMG, SAS, VANOS line), BMW would most likely have replaced the faulty parts, often with new stronger parts, and so the car will probably be in ok shape. I'd still press the dealer to disclose what work has been done on the car before I bought this one...
