    Steering Wheel:
    I have a 2006 X5 with the cold weather and premium packages but not the sports package.

    I don't like the steering wheel and want to upgrade to the M-sport version. Ideally, I would like the E83 M-sport steering wheel (p/n 32303448451). Has anyone else done this upgrade? Any pitfalls?

    Tow Hitch:
    I would like to add a tow hitch, mostly for my bike rack, but also so I can tow a light trailer. Any recommendations for what to buy?

    Side Mirror:
    My side mirror doesn't go up and down correctly when the car is in reverse. I have seen some tech articles on this, but wondering if anyone has had any luck fixing the issue.

    No experience to relate but, hitch, googled up Curt, Hidden Hitch, Stealth, Reese, BMW OEM, so there are options.
