If this was caused by failure of the valve chain guides, you may get BMW to cover the repair, even if it is not under warranty.

No I am the first owner bought new off the lot and it is a '14 model year bought late in 2013. And I have had no coding done. Perhaps there are differences between cars sold in the US versus Canada.

No need for coding. Just push the button to turn it off. And it stays off. No need to do that every time you get in the car.

Issue is are the tires summer or all-season. Summer performance tires are scary once the temps get close to freezing. All seasons are fine in colder temps and light snow.

N20 engine whine typically means the valve chain guides are going. Get it checked out FAST before they fail. There MAY be an extended warranty on this. Check with your dealer.
