Lemon Law resales
I have been watching some K12GT sales on eBay. I have seen more than a couple GTs that BMW repurchased under lemon laws (some of these laws provide for repurchase if the vehicle is out of service for a certain number of days), fixed, and are being resold by dealers, often with original warranty remaining.
One of those bikes is now bid up to a level that I would expect for a bike with no issues whatsoever. What do we conclude-that some people pay too much on eBay, or that there is no stigma associated with "former lemon" in the bike history?
I like the description in some of these bikes which essentially says, "original buyer has a problem that the dealer could not fix, BMW bought it back, NOW it's fixed, runs great". All of which may be perfectly true (perhaps the first dealer had a poor service department or they couldn't get replacement parts from Germany in time); I just find it interesting.
Anybody have a guess as to dealer cost for one of these ex-lemons? I wonder how many bikes BMW is buying back from consumers?
