My OEM wheels on 2016 X5 are 19s. I run 18s (255/55/18) in Nokian Hakks on OEM rims I picked up used from a 2010 X5 owner. The wheels don't look as nice as the 19s, but in snow in Northeast region...

No idea. Try posting a video or sound clip so folks can take a look. Could be anything from a pulley to starter?

Good point. My factory warrant hasn't expired yet, but I may explore extended warranty as others have suggested. The big issue is the time factor related to the repeated service issues. Thanks.

Check your insurance plan first. I always had glass coverage, so it isn't an issue. No deductible required.

Good luck with the repair and good fortune you were not injured. Not to take thread in different direction, but curious. Did the accord driver get a ticket? Hopefully the driver was insured.

I'm likely taking a break from the BMW after the warranty expires. Hope the XC90 comes out with V8 by then or will suck it up and go with an F150 tricked out.
