I believe you have one single mechanical pump. If you don't find what you want on here, head on over to E46fanatics. Many M54 owners over there.

How many miles are on the vehicle? Have you driven another X3 of similar to verify if you're experiencing normal vehicle operation? Are the struts leaking fluid at all?

I am not interested, but it might help to post the mileage cap, and actual expiration date, of the warranty.

I hear a lot of wind noise from the roof when I have the cover retracted. It is virtually eliminated when I close the cover.

Best of luck. These are hard to find. Perhaps spend some time on craigslist? Portland, the bay area, and denver seem to be areas where these things reside!

OP, I feel your pain. But, they break down. My M5 is 12 years old, but when it breaks, it breaks like a $75k car. Use the forums, DIYs, and indys to soften the blow, but, sadly its inevitable.
