SMG had reliability issues but also street drivability issues. I had an M5 smg for a bit, was terrible compared to my DCT.

As for Offlease, I have purchased 4 cars there over the years, all drove fine, all were serviced under warranty by my local BMW dealer, and I saved a lot of $$. I never bought one if the airbags deployed. Two had accidents, they let you drive them alone, I immediately went to my body shop guy nearby and had him check them before purchasing. Both were professionally fixed.

One car was totalled 1.5 years later (08 E93). I had paid $43k, insurance company gave me $46k payout.
