Mein Auto: 3 BMW's a Benz & a Truck
New 4.4i Owner

Good Evening,

Wanted to introduce myself as a proud owner of a 2004 X5 4.4i. I really wanted to get a 4.8is but this one came up at to good a price so in the meantime I am going to drive this until I find one and give it to my younger sister. Don't plan on modding it to heavily plans for now but include LED Angel Eye upgrade, wiring in the AUX cable, maybe painting the grills black, and possibly the BSW subwoofer system.

I do have a couple questions regarding the vehicle however. I need a passenger side mirror and decoded my VIN and saw I have the S430A Interior/outside mirror with auto dip option. I looked up on real oem and saw the only options for the passenger side are a wide and a convex option, link is below. My mirror does not look convex and I'm wondering if part #51168247774 is the right part. Also if anyone has any feedback regarding LED Angel Eyes, the AUX Wiring, or the BSW Subwoofer system it would be greatly appreciated.

Onto some info about it, its Sterling Gray on Black Leather with fine wood trim. It has 140K on the clock but I knew the previous owner and it has been meticulously maintained. He's spent thousands of dollars in maintenance on it and it definitely shows. I drove the vehicle from Atlanta to South Carolina then to New York and it did not skip a beat. Plenty of power, very comfortable at speed, and I averaged 18.2 mpg. Pictures are below, don't have any of the interior but I'll get some this weekend.

Thanks guys.
