What to do after buying a used car.

Ok, so I just bought an E36, and was wondering what to do after I have already bought it. I know I should change oil, air filter, oil filter, spark plugs, alignment, balancing, rotating, etc. But what else? If it were you buying the car, what would you do to make sure that it will be well taken care of and be babied? (I am doing this half for me and half for others.)
Thanks
Nathan

BMW doesn't recommend rotating tires. Of course you can rotate them if you want to.


This thread should be somewhere else -- General BMW, e36 or maybe DIY. . .
