Cooling system refresh (see here: http://www.bimmerfest.com/forums/sho...d.php?t=713745 )

Do a full fluid change: oil & filter; transmission lube; differential lube; coolant flush and fill (make sure you bleed it properly!); brake fluid flush and bleed.

Clean the engine bay

Give that paint some love... clay bar and polish/wax. Use some trim restorer on the belt trim. It's supposed to be black, not gray.

Clean the interior

Polish those headlights.

Paint the gray skirt trim either body color or semi-flat black
