They said that my suspension bushings were worn out, and those too were not covered by my warranty. They don't yet pose a danger, but eventually I could feel some trembling in the steering wheel if I let them go long enough. I admit, I'm not sure what this means, could someone explain it to me?

Sweet Jesus. Is there any way to lower the cost, or am I just going to have to eat the $545 I was quoted? On the one hand, I don't want to end up like THAT. On ther other hand... I can't afford to pay that much.

You can pick up the parts on ebay for under $200, but I don't think BMW will warranty the parts if they aren't BMW. They should at least warranty the install. There is a Ebay store called "PFC Groton" that sells those parts cheap. It is not a hard job to do, so if you can, DIY.

That sounds good, as long as I don't hurt my CPO. I don't want to do anything to screw that up.
While we're on the subject of DIY projects, is replacing my foggy/hazy headlight covers myself a good idea, or should I just invest in a new pair of headlights (with projectors, demon eyes, etc). I'm fairly certain that my headlights are not covered under my warranty (but please, someone correct me if I'm wrong).

It won't effect your CPO. They aren't covered now, so it shouldn't be a worry. (call and ask just be be 100% sure)
As for the headlights, no way in hell the housings are under warranty.
