I would indeed claim that for warranty repair. It was normal use of the vehicle and something such as the wipers should account for resistance and stop accordingly. But then again I am not BMWNA so I have no idea what they will do.
Yes, thank you for putting it more eloquently for me. The snow caused a bigger buildup on the corner away from the driver's seat and that wiper is now bent protruding out of it's normal resting position. And the other arm isn't gliding well now.

I didn't know that you had to keep the wipers out in vertical position to avoid them from sticking to the windshield. But that wasn't my problem.

Other comments would be appreciated.
