Transfer time at Heathrow

I'm flying from CDG to LHR on BA and will be arriving at 7:45am in T5. I have a connecting flight on AA out of T3. My flight departs at 9:30am. I was wanting to know do I have to go through Customs in Heathrow? How long should it take to get to T3 from T5 using the bus? Everything that I read said to allow 90mins to make this transfer but I have been through LHR before and it seems that getting through passport control in T3 can take a long time, especially if their computer systems go down. My tickets are in first class to help get me through security as quickly as possible. Has anyone done this transfer before and does 90 mins seem to be an adequate amount of time? Your help is much appreciated.

1.You have a bit more than 90 mins, you have an hour and 45 mins. Is this journey all on one ticket? This webpage will give you all the info you need.

2. When you arrive at LHR, you follow the signs to Flight Connections. The staff there will direct you to where you need to go. Do not go airside. You will go through a security check and if you don't have your boarding pass for the AA flight, it will be issued at Flight Connections. I don't know if you can do online check with AA, last time I travelled international with them, online check was not allowed but that might have changed by now.

You will not go through immigration and/or customs since you're not transferring to the UK or Ireland.
