I didn't mean to come off very serious with that comment. I don't know the ins nor outs about the lemon laws so I wont pretend I do. It was just a passing notion is all...

Well I got it up in the air and turns out that its the center support bearing. Took a good grip of the front drive shaft and shook it, center support gave way pretty well. Heard some clunking behind the exhaust shield. Front joint held together no problem though. No movement at all on the side going into the transmission.

Took a look at the rear diff to see if the rear driveshaft was moving and it wasn't, so its got to be the center bearing. Parts are on the way for it and im trying to hunt down the BMW salesman that sold it to me to see what he can do about it, but I have a feeling this will be coming out of pocket since it is used and so old.
