Mein Auto: 2001 BMW 740IL
New here and to BMW with questions

Hi everyone. Im very new to BMW and have always been a Cadillac person myself until this car. I got rid of my 2006 Cadillac DTS for this 2001 BMW 740IL . Its a great car but have a few things that id like to do to it but dont really know where to start. Any help would be great.

1- Id like to install "angel eyes" on it, how hard is it to install and whats the best kind?

2- It has the 18in sport wheels on it now but want to upgrade to either the Alpina 20in wheels or the 19in E65/E66 wheels and wonder if that had any effect on the car?

3-How do I get the mirrors to fold in when I lock the car? And I know how to roll the windows down with the key, but ho do you roll them up with the key?

4-Id also like to lower it a little, at least in the front, how do I know if it has self leveling or not so I can know what springs to buy for it? Or does anyone have a good reliable suggestion of a good/safe way to lower it.

5-As ive read many times, my dash pixels are bad, whats the best way and cheapest to fix that without messing with the current miles on the car.

Please let me know if anyone can help me with any of these questions. I thank you in advance for your answers. Have a good night everyone.
