Dealer recommend me to replace the injector and wheel fluid since my 535 reach 35k miles and it cost $445 at dealer. Should I do it? Or should I just skip it? Car runs great now.

First off......what is wheel fluid? Did I miss something?? 2nd, isn't the car under warranty at 35k miles? Why would you have to pay anything? I'm confused...

It's the service centres job to get you to fix things that don't need to be fixed!
Even under warranty I wouldn't take my car to a dealer !

Are you referring to the power steering fluid and to replace the actual injector? Also what year is your 535i.

You dont need to change the fuel injectors/power steering fluid so early.

No. Do not do it and do not go back to that dealer.

Agreed, find a new dealer. It is not needed and should be covered under service plan. I have spent zero on my 2010 535I other than two sets of tires!
