E39 Service Schedule

Guys... trying to hunt down a service schedule for a 2003 M5.

Something that says:
60k do this
70k do that
80k do more of this
90k new clutch ( got that figured out on my own )
100k do what?

Thanks,

Brandon

I'll look in my manual and post it.

PS: Still on original clutch at 102k miles

Your mileage may vary. The dashboard indicators tell you when you need service, for the most part; based on sensory inputs and the way you drive.

I do oil changes every 10k miles with 6.9 quarts of synthetic 5W-30 whether it tells me to or not. The Inspection I and Inspection II haven't come up, but I did the spark plug change at 100k and do whatever it needs as needed.

The description for what Inspection I and Inspection II cover is kinda lengthly...

Thank you...

Yeah man... the service manual.

Showing lotsa check this, check that...

Found this as must do's:
Replace brake fluid every 2 years ( due for me... 08 was last change )
Replace coolant every 3 years ( still good, done in 08 )
Replace Oxygen Sensor at 100k
Replace Spark Plugs at 100k
Replace Sealant Cartridge ( for M-Mobility System ) every 3 years
Replace ATF every 100k, since mine is a manual maybe longer... maybe not.

Again, appreciate your help.

Brandon

Good idea to check the power steering fluid, maybe every 2-3 years to see how it is doing (color wise). Xenon headlamps probably around 5 years or so to keep them at high brightness (they won't die out for longer, but a noticeable difference when they are replaced).
