Welcome along, nice looking X5 :)

Ive always polished and waxed my wheels.....they still look as good as new...what most do is just wash and dry the wheels..you have to treat them as you do the rest of the car....

Apart from the financial cost, it does give peace of mind
My X3 is having a full transmission service on Monday.  It's "only" done 72k miles, but it's never (yet) been out of the dealer network so it will never have been done.
My local transmission specialist recommended to me that, despite BMW's protestations to the contrary, it should be done every 3 years or 50k miles.
I figure that even at £500 per service, it's got to be cheaper than a transmission rebuild/replacement.

 Think that will only be fluid and filter....I tried for ages to find a place who do the whole service in the UK...not even ZF UK do it....what I mean is they dont take the VCB out and take it all apart...like this:

I did pop over to ZF in Dortmund next to the airport a few years back and had my 735i box serviced, felt like a total new car when it was finished, didnt know there was a ZF in Brussels...may just get over there in the X6 and have that done, thanks for the info....should have had it done when I lived in Belgium...doh!!

Battery will be around 12V....only whilst running should it go up to between 13.8 and 14.2

Vibration at 70 will be wheel balance....I presume you have had a 4 wheel alignment after changing the bushes?

Open the bonnet and have a listen....get someone to rev it up ....engage drive and listen...its an elimination project.

Low voltage in battery...

Worth changing the serpentine belt with that mileage.....if not already done in its service history.

No it wouldnt, the wheel speed sensor measures just that, rotation speed of wheel...not if it wobbles etc.
