Just bought used X3 3.0i - Help with diagnosing 2 noises?

Couldn't pass up on buying a 2005 X3 with 86k yesterday. Couple of noises I'm hearing, hope you guys can help me figure out what needs work:

-Engine chirping sound on cold start, emphasized when turning steering wheel. Potential PS fluid or belt/pulley/tensioner issue? (video: Chirping, squeaking sound )

-Thumping/clunking feeling when braking abruptly, low or high speeds. I don't think it's the brake system. Potential control arm bushings gone? (sorry no video here!)

Let me know if I need to include more details to pin-point issues?

Thanks for your help.
