100k maintenance

I recently helped my son buy a 2005 330ci and have been reading a lot about what to replace at 100k. I know it cost much less than the 7 series which is probably why there is so much more written about the 3 series. What to replace on the 3 series at 100k is very well documented. What should be replaced on the 7 series at 100k? I just turned 80k on my 745i and want to plan ahead.

The coolant system is supposedly the weak point on the 3 series. It has a plastic impeller on the water pump. Is the coolant system a weak point on the 7? I don't hear a lot about them overheating.

Google Motive Power Bleeder.....it was simple to use to replace brake fluid on the 7 series.

Start with Coolant System by replacing hoses, water pump, and thermostat. I did the radiator too but you don't have to.

I also replaced my battery and alternator.

I am replacing all control arms, shocks, and struts this spring.

I have 87K on my 2004 745i.
