Not being a DIY guy, last week I took my car into my indie shop to have all the oils changed. I've adopted a 30K schedule (except for the engine oil where I'm doing 5K). Because I'm still under warranty I thought it best to get all official BMW fluids.

So FYI, here are part #'s:

Engine oil: 07510017954
Oil filter kit (N52): 11427566327
Manual transmission oil: 83220309031
Transfer case oil: 83220397244
Differential oil: 83220002094
Differential drain plugs: 33117525064

Also, as a reminder, apparently the computer needs to be told when the transfer case fluid has been changed. The shop did that, didn't charge me separately for hooking up to the computer. I don't know how essential this is, because if it's really necessary then any transfer case fluid change will require going to a shop with a computer link unless you have your own.

Also, the best online prices I've found have been with, good service too. Didn't use them this time, though, since the shop ordered everything.
