You absolutely need a pre-purchase inspection by a good BMW mechanic. With that in hand you could then knowledgeably negotiate for a lower price.

Check the tire pressure. Then drive it for at least 30 miles to work out any flat spots. If the problem remains then it could be unevenly worn tires.

It's definitely possible to fit oem xenons. It will just cost money and take time to do it right.
Before you spend that much money you need to be clear about why you are taking this project on.

Brake fluid replacement is a standard procedure for all cars. Seals can wear out and need replacement no matter the brand of car.

Did you buy an extended warranty? If so did it cover the seal?

Check these boosters. I think one of those should give the needed lift and be supportive. The inexpensive Walmart-like products are usually too soft. A seat booster should be all that is needed. ...
