Mein Auto: 2006 325xi wagon manual
Found a Sport Wagon!

I just purchased a 06 325xiT with the rare 6 speed Manuel, offset wheels, nav, black leather and sports package with a near perfect sparkeling graphte metallic paint. 57k miles. I purchased it from the orginal owner who was moving back to Germany where he orginally took delivery of his US spec wagon. Most of his service records are from German BMW dealers and a few from the states for the 2 years he moved back. I guess I need to learn german so I can read all the details?

The water pump and thermostat have been replaced recently but I want to do all the right maintenace items before I put to many miles on it so any help would be appreciated. First thing I did was change the oil, not to bad when your brother has a lift in his garage! How about other fluids, bushings etc? Hopefully I can do most items myself.

Appreciate the help.

Google Mike Miller BMW

Google Mike Miller BMW for the old school maintenance schedule.
BMW fluid must be used for the transfer case. Redlineoil is good
for the transmission and differentials. See there app at redlineoil.com
for fluid selections.
CDV valve delete is recommended for better clutch feel.




You can get the manual as a free download from bmwusa.com the main manual that is .
The idrive/nav and the bluetooth phone are separate small manuals.

Check when it was last time the brake/clutch fluid was done, most people change it every 1 or 2 years. Since you have access to a lift, it is also easy to replace the MT, TC, and the fluids in both differentials; these are alleged to be "life" fluids, but many people change them, following the Mike Miller's old school maintenance recommendations.

Congratulations on finding the car.
