Another question for you; since you have had the KW's on, has your check engine light come on for any reason?

I woke up today, and noticed my check engine light was on. I took it to BMW since there is one right near where I live and they didn't think it was a big deal and told me to come back in a couple of days if it doesn't go away. The guy didn't think the new c/o system would have anything to do with it.

I mentioned that a day before, I got a message on my car telling me to "fasten the gas cap", so I went, it already was fastened, unfastened it, then restarted the car and it was good and cleared.

BMW worker thinks that maybe my wheel bumped the wheel well in the back and triggered the gas cap message like that, and thinks it may clear in a couple of days. I am probably going to take it back to LTMW after work and have them check that code out..

Also, tremolo, have you noticed or felt any grinding at all in the front? I feel a slight grind once and awhile while turning, especially on dips; although LTMW said after looking it all again, everything was clearing with no rubbing, but thought maybe it was something to do with my steering column, have you had anything similar?
I haven't had any of the problems you've mentioned. I did rub my tire on the fender once while going up my driveway at an angle. My wheel was turned almost all the way. It wasn't a bad rub. It only rubbed because I hit the driveway a little bit fast and the car bounced a tiny bit. My iDrive said my oil is at Min... but I think that's different from the check engine light. I've had no issues with the gas cap. My brakes grind and squeal, but I dont' think that has anything to do with the suspension.
