Update:

Was told today that the valvetronic is probably the culprit and the head will be replaced. Should know by middle of next week if this fixes it.

I am fairly certain the speed was limited because it did go into limp mode because of the chassis stabilization error.

Your X3 will do the same as your Lexus. It only re-locks the doors if a door is not opened. It will not lock the doors on its own.

I had a screw in my tire and just had it repaired at a local tire shop. I don't think you would get a new tire just for having a screw in your tire unless it was beyond repair.

I bought the all-weather mats from BMW and fit great. I got the rear BMW cargo mat as a gift and it fits great also. Well worth it to get both.
