i wouldnt necessarily not a buy one. you really have to look into why it was bought back. in the E60 forum there are many people who bought lemoned cars and couldnt be happier. they were lemoned because of the HPFP and were fixed with the new fuel pump. so in reality their cars are perfectly fine. you dont want to buy one with a bunch of phantom issues (ie, wont start, stops sporadically, etc); things that cant be easily duplicated and fixed. you can save thousands and have many years of trouble free motoring; yes i said many years, because you have to keep in mind that your re-sell value will take a significant hit so you need to plan on keeping it for a while to make any sense financially (ie whats the point of saving thousands initially only to lose thousands at re-sell?)
