First thing to go...???

What is the consensus on the first things to go on these e92s? Any prevents or pre-emptive attacks to employ? I have 32K right now on 335i. Feels, sounds, performs flawlessly (well, as flawlessly as I know it from 3K ago when I bought it).

the laser guided rear-mounted rockets tend to miscalibrate around 40k.

First to go on ours.

Thankfully under warranty.

Stop using the sunroof and you should be OK after warranty expiration!

Rear tires, worn on the inside tread to the cords. Maybe the most common prob of all.

It's not stupid, change your automatic trans fluid and diff fluids more than BMW recommends - 50k would be advisable. Waterpumps seem to go 80-100k fairly commonly, but a bit expensive to be done preventatively. Seems carbon buildup in the intake is common like all DI cars, walnut shell blasting cleans things up and helps performance and potentially valve seal life. Could be done now, 50k anytime, really you can't tell until there is an issue or you take the charge pipe off and take a look inside with a scope.

Otherwise since the fuel pump and injector recalls that seemed to fix up those 2 issues, they seem pretty reliable at least to 100k, not enough data on higher mileage yet!
