This happened to me recently. My "baby" wouldn't start, the lights lit up, the radio plays but the engine would not turn. My first instinct was the battery. I jumpstarted, no go. So I had to tow the car to BMW. 5 mns latter they told me it was just the key not functioning properly!... So next time your car won't start, don't overlook the key and always have a spare key handy.

First they "massaged" the seals as a tempraray measure then they removed the seales and re set them, thts wahat they told me. Originlly I thought that they had replaced the seals. The BMW delers seesm to be tight lipped as to how they fixed it. Its been ok since (hope it stays tht way). With your wind noise I cant see how that can be, unless they installed some non standard replacemsnt seal?
I would go back to the dealer and complain. good luck with it.

Regarding your tow bar hitch. I was told the same thing in Australia BUT, the BMW tow bar is made by the Hayman Reece Co out here with BMW badge. Its the wiring harness thats the problem. In Aus$ the wiring harness is $1000 plus 3 hours labour. The non genuine installation is about $900 cheaper and only one hour labour and the park sensors are not problem provided you do not have a tow ball decorative chrome cover fitted over the ball. Mine used to set off the sensors, but when the cover was discarded, no problem. I'm very pleased.

Sorry about the delay, they had the reply function broken.
Yes, there is a new OEM CD changer that supports MP3 playback (as stated in the owners manual). Go back to the dealer and have them replace your "factory installed" one with the right version. Fight for it !
