consider having your control arm bushigns checked. when those go out the inside of the wheels tend to wear prematurely. They will wear before the bushings have worn ou t enough to tell under normal driving conditions.
Not sure how the 5 series suspension is set up, but I would check the Control arm bushings and control arms for wear.
for 3 series under normal driving the bushings will last 50-100k based on the type of driving. (atleast from what i have read.)
