I'm not big on hitting rumble strips but our tracks our here do have lots of elevation changes and compression turns that really load up the suspension and bearings and cause noticeable knockback.
I also spoke with bimmerworld and their vote goes to knockback springs. They said they've seen few if any wheel bearing issues on the e90.
I certainly will keep an eye on my bearings though.
To answer your question from way back: my front right bearing was replaced due to a track accident at about 20k miles. Rear right bearing was replaced at 20k miles too, but it started making a clicking noise soon after and was replaced under parts warranty at 25k miles. Car currently has 29k miles.
