68000km is is nothing for an X5. Just get the dealer to fix the screen. There is an iDrive setting which turns it off. Not sure how much a pre purchase would be but money well spent. Good luck.

This was the second. The first was a similar issue on my X5, but a front tire and a standard 19" wheel, they paid but the tire wasn't as expensive. It still felt good though!
