There is a thumping noise is the right front wheel on my 2008 535xi. What could be the cause of this?

Kind of hard to tell over a computer. The two most common causes would be a broken tire belt, which you will typically also feel, or a warped or rusted brake rotor. An inspection at a tire and alignment shop will usually identify the problem.
