2013 335i xdrive N55 70K Miles Common Issues

I am new to BMW. What are the common issues for a 2013 with 70K miles I should specifically look for?

What tech option is the first to cause issues? Adaptive cruise? Adaptive M suspension? The display control system?

Thank you in advance.

Echoing earlier comment about the charge pipe. Best to replace it now with an aft(ER)market one made of metal.

Great info. I think all of these were checked/replaced except the cooling fan unless a code would show up. And the front door lock actuators.

Engine gaskets don't currently leak but monitoring.

What specifically on the front shocks failed?

Do I recall the charge pipe is plastic, replaced with metal?

Had any specific issues when you noticed shocks and bushings?

For those of you that have had to do thrust arms did you do upper and lower or just lower? Curious if one goes bad or both.

What caused you to change the cooling fan? Weird drivetrain error, fan staying on max u til you turn off the car, or both????

Erratic fan speeds. Would sound like a jet engine when in park with a/c on.
