Ard, The manufacturers are 100 steps ahead when it comes to lemon law - wish I had known all this before hand. There is a reason the service orders are written a certain way - "Customer states that CEL is on" for example. Then there are rules like it has to be the same problem - well the manufacturer can argue that the CEL was caused by different problems. Plus I live in TX,a pretty business friendly state. I didn't want to go this route - with an attorney, but BMW N.A just ignored me. It appears that they just want to keep this thing stringing along and hope the customer just goes away and does nothing. I didn't have the same experience several others mentioned where they said BMW just stepped up. Even though they are called lemon law attorneys, they are filing under DTPA (Texas Deceptive Trade Practices Act) - which has a fee shifting provision.
