Buyback M6?

Hello everyone. I've been asking some questions over in the 'Ask a Dealer' forum about pricing and whatnot on a M6. I'd like to get some opinions from M6 owners or soon to be owners.

This vehicle (2013 M6 that is being sold for 60k with 22,450 miles) was a buyback/lemon in California. The dealer sent me over some paperwork and here is what I found. It is nearly fully loaded. MSRP 118,000ish.

Car was leased in May of 2013.

5/23/14 (11,150 miles):

General maintenance
Switch, front seat adjustment unit occasional malfunction
Fuel injector permanent malfunction
Oil pipe, exhaust turbocharger (ATL) leaking

12/16/14 (16,105 miles):
Retrofit heat protection mat to coolant lines

2/6/15 (16,266 miles):
Connecting rod broken
Core credits - automatic VIA IWS - Ontario PDC. Valid for repair dates from 12/18/97 (no clue what this means)

3/20/15 (16,574 miles):
Fuel injector leaking
Bowden cable, bonnet cracked/broken/torn off
Seat module/seat control module permanent malfunction

4/1/15 (17,425 miles):
Ignition coil permanent failure

8/14/15 (22,364 miles):

11/12/15 (22,474 miles):
Brake pads - maintenance plan
Rear window shelf (inc. support) poorly adapted/fitted
Load sill cover, luggage compartment poorly adapted/fitted

I am assuming that this vehicle was a buyback/lemon because of the amount of time that it was in the shop to repair? Do the other issues seem like they are worthy of classifying this as a buyback/lemon? Since everything is covered under warranty for 48/50k miles my assumption is that this did not cost the previous owner anything but rather more of a hassle to not have the car for periods of time during repair.

60k seems like a good price for this vehicle but I'm nervous about it as being branded as a buyback/lemon especially if I go to sell it in the future. I would also hate to be in the position of other major problems where I will be without the M6 for relatively extended periods of time - although BMW does offer loaner vehicles if I'm correct?

I would run from this one!

A broken connecting rod paired with the need for new brakes at 22K mi. tells me that someone ran the sh!t out of this car.

You could possibly buy it and never experience another problem but something tells me there is a high probability that other components will experience early failure.
