Ducksrunner^^^ nice looking ride!! Not much you could do with that from an exterioir mod point of view. Looks like the previous owner was all over that stuff.

Read the WIKI at the top of the page and you will find out all you need to know about maintenance and DIY repairs.

If the mileage is north of 80k miles, and it hasn't been done, you need to start thinking about a cooling system refresh, north of 100K and the control arm bushings are likely shot maybe the ball joints as well.

Some other random items..
Regular tranny and diff oil changes are a must for longevity. Power steering reservoir drain and refresh. Brake/clutch fluid replacement every 2 years at least. Coolant every 2 years. Fuel filter at 100k.

#1 thing to remember...there is no such thing as "lifetime" with these or any cars. BMW's and their fluids/parts wear out as with all cars.

Welcome to the fest.

I'm not a pessimist. At some point the world sh!ts on everybody. Pretending it ain't sh!t makes you an idiot, not an optimist.
