Hey guy I guess I am looking for a current/correct maint schedule. So I can maintain this car and not involve the dealership.
I found this

Is there a better current schedule out there?

You could just let Idrive tell you when and what maintenance then reset as you complete.
Here is something that will help with everything else...
Level I/II Inspection
this is what should be done at the vehicle check interval.

I haven't had mine very long, but I have learned a lot in a short time. I had a couple oil leaks and had mine in the shop. Valve cover and transmission sleeve (known problem with N52 AT "Automatic Transmission"). While in there it was given the level II. They call it something else now, can't recall what that is at the moment. The car won't tell you Level I or II, it will just say Vehicle Check. My suggestion would be to do as much reading now as you can, then you can make a better decision as to what level and frequency you feel good about. About the plugs, That will vary a lot, if you you can find what the recommendations and current countdowns are. The plugs are part of that. I think its under "Information Sources, Vehicle Information". Anyway its a good idea to sit down and surf Idrive to get more familiar with all the information it holds.
