2012 X3 Damaged Suspension - Help

Hello, a new 2012 X3 owner and looking for some advice. We have had our X3 for about 1 year.

A few days ago, two warning lights came on:

4x4 Chassis Malfunction Stabilization
Tire Pressure Monitor Not Working

So we took it in thinking is was a sensor issue. BMW dealer is saying that there is major suspension damage due to impact on the front passenger tire. They have estimated $8000.00 in repairs! Including the mandatory replacement of the steering box (3k alone).

Thing is, neither one of us hit anything. There is some minor curb rash on the rim, but that's it. No other tire damage, no dents, etc. They have told us there is no body damage, all the damage is mechanical.

My question is, if neither one of us remembers hitting a curb with any significant impact, how could this happen? How can they even prove that the minor curb rash is associated with enough impact to create such damage?

Is it not something that should be covered under a warranty of some sort?

Any advice would be greatly appreciated!
