Done the oil analysis thing enough to know that BMW's OCI are not too long, so I go with that. 5 Years on coolant, never had an issue. 100K on spark plugs. Diff, manual trans, transfer case, trans fluid 75K. As for hard parts, the rule is simple. If it ain't broke (or showing signs of distress), don't fix it. You do know that FAR more related/unrelated mechanical problems are caused when maintainence is performed than the maintainence was supposed to fix. How many times have you heard of people getting something fixed and then having several others things wrong after the repair? It's incredibly common.
