2)to paint all the wood details into aluminium silver;
3)install running boards;
4)install X5 E70 gear knob - http://www.ebay.com/itm/BMW-E36-E38-...ts_Accessories
5)install pedals - http://www.ebay.com/itm/BMW-M-TECH-E...ts_Accessories

Tim congrats on the X! I'm a sucker for the E53.

Dig it! Removing the headliner isn't too terrible on the E53. There are a few DIYs floating around but honestly once you get going you'll see how it comes out.

Painting it sounds like a very tricky ordeal. I'd just wrap it in brushed aluminum vinyl like the 3M 1080 I have available HERE

The 19s or 20s would look great on your X. Just another option, check out the Azlor 710s (LINK).

Typically a 5x5 section (LINK) can be used to cover all of the interior trim in the E53.
