Same here...I never did any maintenance myself until I got my first bimmer. I have never paid more than $100 for an oil change, even with the MC where it uses those expensive $15 TWS oil.

I've replaced my battery twice now. Nothing special needed to be done other than resetting the clock and turning the steering wheel lock to lock to reset a few of the dash lights.
