You wont get all your money back even if your situation meets the lemon criteria. That's because you used the car. There is going to be a depreciation factor based on mileage which will affect how much you get back. I'm pretty sure this is the case even under California law.
I just had a buy back from BMWNA and it's not that easy doing it yourself, 6 repairs with two different dealers and could not fix the roof due to squeaks & rattle. Finally got an attorney involved and BMW agreed to do a buy back within three weeks and I just turn over the car today. If you need help I can hook you up with my lemon law attorney.
