Do you maintain your x5 e53 yourself?...Your experience appreciated!

In fact, BMW advise against people servicing their cars, which should be the domain of only authorised BMW mechanics. Like a Swiss Watch, you can reduce the cost if your car by less than half if you try to service it yourself, and prospective buyers won't like seeing an empty service log book when it is time to sell. I would think on balance that you service your own BMW after it has reached the age of about 12-15 years, by which time it will be pretty valueless as a 'runs well' category, and then you can do anything you want yourself without dramatic loss of asset value.
