New x5 owner questions. ..!!!!

Ok so 5 simple questions. ..
1..where can I get a 4.8is flare kit that fits my 2004 x5 4.4is

2..is there a way I can connect my usb memory stick some where. ..

3...if my passenger door doesn't open with the key fob lock stays down door won't open from outside only from the inside. ...is that the handle carrier. .lock actuator or handle key lock ...kind of confuse on that one..

4... can I lower my x5 couple of inches once I put the 20" wheels on...

5...my passenger window opens only with its own door switch. ..not with the drivers main one that means that the driver main switch is bad or what??

Thank you all for the help in advance. .

1. flare kit on ebay. i just got one but have not installed it yet.

2. not that i know of on oem head units. ive upgraded my head unit to a Sony XAV-AX100 Digital multimedia receiver. I love it. also had a flat subwoofer installed.

3. these doors are known for that problem. not sure what the fix is though. you should be able to find that in this forum though. or here on youtube

4. lower with eibach or h&r springs. those only go 1-1.5 inches though. or alternatively the best bet is to go with BC racing coilovers for e53. a bit more pricier but well worth it.

5. i have no idea. sorry.

congrats on your new E53!

2. If you google grom car you can choose your exact car and they have modules for Bluetooth and usb and they are plug and play, I've used it for about 3 years in two different bmw's and I have loved mine. I should state however I am not sure how well usb works as I only have the Bluetooth one!

I have the H&R sport springs on the front of my X5 4.6is and used lowering links in the rear for the air bags to lower the vehicle completely. The vehicle sits perfectly for me at this level. Its about 1.5-2 inches lower than stock. The lowering links are provided in the H&R kit and are adjustable so the kit is complete.

I'd love a review of the unit and some pics installed. I'm running an Eonon now but the dim screen (and Android) leave me open to upgrades.

i love the unit as it seamlessly pairs with bluetooth and shows navigation from phone through carplay. i like the carplay features since i am an iphone user. its just so convenient. no need for extra xm radio components and stuff since you can just play it through your phone. its all touch screen based as well. a lot of voice activated features as well since it links with siri.

honestly if you're not an iphone user then youre probably better off with the Eonon.
EDIT: after watching the video bellow its pretty awesome with androids as well.

heres a review & demo.

i will upload some pics for you soon!

Awesome - thanks. Eager to see how it looks in the dash. I do everything on my phone or iPad - maps, music, contacts, OBD2, etc - so the ideal scenario for me is a head unit with a big, bright screen that just mimics my phone.
