My concern for all of you membersvis resale value, right? You don't want to lose car resale value, particularly with Beemas under 12 yrs old, so get it Sevices by authorised dealers, make sure your service book is stamped each time, and enjoy your car, and the money you collect on resale for your next new Beema!

Sorry I meant my indy mechanic has 16yrs experience with bimmers. Mine is an 03 530i with 98k miles. Great car, drives awesome. I log everything I do by date and mileage just to keep up with scheduled maintenance. I plan to drive it till it won't drive no more so I'm not worried about resale.

Trying to decide between adding an X5 or e60 soon which is why I come around here once in a while. FYI I do plan on diy as much as I can on either choice too.
