Could be the starter, but before you start to replace expensive parts the EWS and DME modules may need to be synchronized, it requires a BMW specific scan tool. If they lost sync the car won't start - even with a new starter. Did the battery died before this problem occured?
Question Answered: car has fire but no fuel at injectors fuel pump working. won,t start

Did you check the pressure between the pump and the filter? 70 psi is higher than specs, if you checked it before the filter it may be clogged. The normal pressure with pump running - engine off: 38-44 psi.
Based on the high pressure and no fuel at return line I bet there is a blockage somewhere in the lines or clogged filter.
Question Answered: faulty transmission temperature sensor for 911 Turbo S PDK

I assume they checked the fluid levels and they are OK.
In some cases software could cause the problem also, so make sure the latest update was installed.
If the sensor is not available as a single unit, the entire PDK transmission has to be replaced. The warranty should covers it.
Problem Reported: Internal Transfer Case Problem on the 4WD models

An abnormal noise may develop from the transfer case. At this time parts are not available to repair internal damage to this type of transfer case, replacement is the only option. It is not uncommon for irregular tire wear to cause a similar noise. Diagnoses should be performed to confirm the actual cause of the driveline noise. Tire noise can be reduced by rotating the tires at least every 5000 miles.
Car Review: 2005 Toyota 4Runner

I bought tis car new and ever since she served the family well.
I had to wait for it an extra 3 weeks, because I wanted one without the sunroof and leather/electrical seat.
I'm a tech, so I take care of all the maintenance or repair and the car gets all the best - OE or better parts.
Beside the reg. services I replaced the following:
-all tires @ 40K
-front brakes @ 50K
-A/C evaporator @ 55K (that's the reason for 3 stars on the A/C system)
The only thing I miss is an MP3 capable CD player and a switch for the traction control. There are some off-road situations when it would be better off. Overall - it's a great car, I'd buy one again.
