How to maintain a 2007 E91 with a diesel motor?

Hello everyone, I'm a new BMW owner, I have 320d Diesel 2007 which has been driven for 309,000km, yet I wonder how maintain the car in order to make live for a long time ( frequent maintenance..etc )
- Other thing is, does anyone know where to find a decent online tuning store? For accessories etc? Preferably in EU.
Or even if possible, im open to any ideas to spoil the interior with simple tools/gadgets or whatever,

Please feel totally free to share your thoughts or/and experience.

Thank you all in advance.

The diesel subforum is a better place to post this: http://www.bimmerfest.com/forums/forumdisplay.php?f=154

Nevertheless, there are many options for tuning in EU/UK; use the search function in the diesel forum. Just remember that tuning generally adversely affects longevity.

Thank you so much, the kind of tuning I'm looking after must have nothing to do with the car mechanical nor electronic system,
for example I'm looking for a waxing machine to wipe the car with, sport interior seat dressing to protect the original fabric.
However, thank you again for the advice, I'll keep what you said in mind

You really don't need a waxing machine. A good paint sealant will last longer than wax and can be applied with an applicator pad easily. Lexol leather products are very good for the money. Don't know if they have it over in EU though.

Unfortunately we don't have Lexol products here in Scandinavia, not that I can find at least, but I'll consider paint sealant over wax, since it lasts longer.
Thank you for the tips!
