power steering forsure... check your fluids...after parking check to see if your leaking anything... its so cold outside you most likely have some cracks in the rubber hose

just topped it up with ATF and now it's fine. Seems like a slow leak so I'll find the leak in the spring

Definitely change out the hoses. It's a quick and easy fix. Cheap too.

Make sure you use the hose clips with the screw instead of BMW's ridiculous clip ones.
