Z4 warranty almost up

My M Coupe's 4 year warranty is almost up so I am going to bring it to the dealer and have anything possible looked at/fixed. I was planning on bringing up the motor mounts & coil packs. Is there anything else you guys would recommend having checked? Any recalls that I may have overlooked?

Have them check the brake pad thickness. If it is less than 3mm, they will change the brakes even if the light is not on. When I had mine checked out, they also checked the window regulators and found one was about ready to go. It was a surprise to me, as I had not noticed it.

What I did prior to my CPO warranty expiration is take my car to an indy shop to get a thourough mechanical inspection done, and then walk into a dealership well prepared, with all the issues. Just dont show them a listing from the indy shop ... ;-)
