Advice for a noob:

2. Search is your friend.

The E70 has been around so long that there is a HUGE amount of valuable information here on the 'Fest. A couple hours spent reading threads will pay huge dividends.

A couple features you will want to discover, that a lot of owners miss:

Residual heat: you likely had this on your 550, but it is activated differently on the X5
Hill Descent Control
Turning off DSC - when you want to do it, and how to do it.
Why you will occasionally see just one fog light illuminated, and why that shouldn't send you into a tizzy.

Good luck with your new ride.
