Adaptive headlights only swivel up to a set speed, I think it's approx 40mph. So not much help when pushing on but very good at low speed particularly where there are no street lights.

You can buy a plug kit, tyre sealant and a compressor and store it in the boot for peace of mind.

With regards to the wheel being effectively welded to the hubs. Did you use BMW for servicing? They don't bother to remove wheels as part of a service and this is the result. Most good independents do remove wheels as a matter of course to prevent.
