The manual says to drive it at least 12 miles a day I believe. Either way - it makes no sense, to have to drive a these cars certain miles each day for the battery to maintain a charge.

Well said - To each their own. It all depends on each individual's driving needs/pattern. Some can care less about the extra power that the 550 has over the 528/535, or the 535 has over the 528.

Sounds like it's actually malfunctioning. You do not get a malfunction message when tire pressure is low.

Navigation Screen Question

On my 2011, the day/night settings are ignored if Traffic controls/grey map is checked. So I set a short cut/memory button to turn Traffic controls/grey map on/off.

This may actually be a bug in the updated software, rather than a policy change. If it's the latter, it makes no sense!
