Smile DIY Oil Change

Hi there I will be attempting my first oil change on the 2005 X5 4.4i this weekend. I have done plenty of oil changes on my previous inline 6 e46 but have a couple questions on this engine.

1. I suspect my vehicle has air suspension, does anything need to be turned on or off before jacking up the car?

2. Where should I jack the car up from?

3. Where is the oil filter located?

4. Where is the oil drain plug located? I would hate to drain the transmission oil...

Thank you for your responses!
