1. I would fully load a leased vehicle. Because you won't be able to modify it, it's best to have all the factory doo-dads. Possibly upgrade to the 4.8i (grab the Sports Package and 20" rims). Most dealers will allow tint (since it can be removed.

2. Unless you *KNOW* that you're going to exceed the lease mileage restrictions, the limits should be more than enough. See how much they're willing to work with you. Most dealers will allow you more miles than what they initially advertise with a slight increase in your rates. Besides, if you go over the limit, it doesn't cost much to pay the "over mileage".
Says who...? Of course you can modify it, just keep the stock parts.

With this being said, l wouldn't lease a car without corporate benefits.

Good luck, X5s are pretty nice!
