Thumbs down Very problematic 530d(e60)

Hi Guys
Can anyone please give me some advice, i purchased an approved demo 530d from a dealership on Joburg with 25 000km and 2009 model. This car has been a problematic car from the beginning ranging from small things to suspension problems now(Apparently never been in an accident). i have been taking this back to the dealer at least once a month for the last 12 months.
All they keep saying is they will check the car from bumper to bumper. Then i get the car back in the same condition, seems to me like they probably just used it and had it washed and gave it back to me saying alls well.

I have had enough of Vehicle manufactures taking the customer for a ride as i have been through this before with a new VW GTI, i have never and will never buy another VW again and i see the same thing happening with BMW.

I believe they need to acknowledge the fact that this is a faulty car and replace it, am i unreasonable????(I would think not when spending soo much money).

The advice will be greatly appreciated.

Here in the States we have what is called the "Lemon Law", and in the State of Illinois this applies first followed by the Magnuson-Moss Act. We also have the Illinois Attorney General for Consumer Rights. I Wonder if you have similar Laws and Bills in Africa ?
