'08 550, hit 100,000 mile mark, quick review

I thought I would chime in and give a quick review of my 08 550 since I just crossed the 100,000 mile mark. All I can say is that this car has been a dream to own. It still runs incredibly strong and is still rock solid. not a cabin sqeak or a rattle. I bought the car as a certified pre-owend at 32,000 miles back in December of '10. Included in the deal was free maintenace and warranty up to 100k miles. I followed BMW's maintenance program and my dealer performed all work. 14-15k mile oil changes, brake fluid changed once, air filter change, in cabin filter change, scope and inspect car at every visit. 3 sets of rear tires and 2 sets of front. Replaced DLR with stock halogens. Both rear tail lights changed out. Just replaced spark plugs at 99,800 covered under maintenance plan. Oh, and i averaged 22.8 MPG (majority of my driving is highway). I plan on keeping this car another 100k miles. Sorry I don't have anything else to report but I guess that is a good thing. The last 68k miles for me have been rather uneventful but very fun at the same time
