I don't pay $190AU per hr for a master BMW authorised mechanic for no reason. Proper service means your BMW will last many years with only minimal maintenance, which in the end, will cost you much less than if you tried DIY service, which for many, end in tears and a great loss in resale?

And I've been over just about every inch of my E53. Can you tell me which components need to be cleaned with specialized fluids?
