Lemon laws have provisions about having 3 failed attempts to fix a serious problem, typically a safety or driveabilty problem. This type of paint problem may not qualify under any circumstances (don't know how serious it is - if it's rust, it would be more serious).

Anyway, it seems logical to give BMW a chance to fix the problem. Maybe it isn't under the paint. Some people have reported what appears to be rust spots that can be rubbed out with clay bars. Usually from metal flake residue from rail or other shipping of the cars, apparently.

Anyway, I wouldn't want a new car to be repainted either, if that turns out to be the solution. It CAN be done correctly, though.
