Newbie questions on 2007 530xi

Hi Folks, I'm considering a 2007 530xi and am looking for some input on the following:

1) are 255HP/220 torque enough to handle 3,600 lbs?...the next step up would be the 550 V8 w/360HP, but it doesn't come with 4x4...
2) with the iDrive, there's a single point of failure, so if the chip fails, no cd, no radio, nav, no computer info, etc...any known issues with this?
3) will the xDrive enable me to use all-season tires as opposed to switching between summer & winter?


The more expensive the car, the cheaper the spare parts should be !
