Do you have the manual? that will tell you what should be done at what mileage....When I brought my 99...540...it had 105K I took it to a good BMW mechanic and had them do the #2 service so that I knew where everything was at....I ended up doing some other work as well....but that because I didn't have worry about anything

A good BMW place can do a diagnostic on the car and tell you what needs to be done

Its Going To Cost How Much???????
