The car was at the BMW dealership yesterday and the issue with the steering wheel controls is that the clock spring in the airbag assembly is dead, so they need to change the entire airbag assembly to fix it. The side effect of that failure is also that the airbag will probably not deploy in the event of a crash, so it is a good thing I got it checked and that the car is still under warranty.

Thanks for everybody who contributed to the thread.

Did you pull a Carproof report prior to buying the car?
