'05 530i, need help with a few things
I would like to fix up my car a bit and would like to know where to go to get the majority of it done. (I'm in Jacksonville, NC)

I need upholstery work behind the passenger seat
I also would like a new right taillight since it has a minor chip on it, no big deal
New floor mats
I drove from San Diego all the way over here and now my front bumper has a lot of tiny dings on it
Should I get the updated disc for iDrive?
The wood finish on the dash has a crack right down the middle so where can I get a new one?
The passenger door where the wood finish ends (near the dash) is broken so it kind of hangs out a bit.

Any and all help would be greatly appreciated!

Here are answers to some of your questions

1. Does Idrive work fine? If so, no need to bother paying a few $100 for a s/w update.

2. The wood trim can be purchased online and be replaced yourself although you need to take the entire door panel off the properly remove and install the trim piece on the door handle. I have some cracks in mine, but am not replacing it for two reasons: (1) its f*ing expensive and all you get is stinkin piece of BMW glorified wood (2) it will be hard to find an exact match for the rest of the wood trim in your car.

3. You can find floor mats online - just search for E60 floormats. A OEM set will run around $140.
