Question: Would you buy a "buyback?"

Exploring buying a 2011 or 2012 rather than new 2013 (hate that first year depreciation). Came across a BMW Dealer (verified he is actual dealer) who had very low mile 2011's. I called about them and sales person said original owner of one of them (a 550 xi) had mechanical problems so BMW replaced the car. He called it a "buyback."

Another was a car from out of the dealer area and salesperson said it was a "car we bought from BMW" but did not explain.

First one sounds like might have been a "lemon" buyback and I wonder how BMW treats warranty for such cars.

The second one I don't understand what it means when a dealer says they "bought a used car from BMW"--demo, loaner, another lemon?

One car was built in March of 2011 so possibly beyond "early build" issues that might have occurred with the new 2011 model year 550's--the other was built December, 2010.
