100,000km service

Hi all,

I am new to the BMW crew! Bought first BMW, 335i Convertible (standard shift) in sept 2012 at 80,000 km. i am already at 103,000km and no warranty on the car.

I did an oil change and spark plugs at the stealership at about 95k.

Now I am wondering what else should I be looking at in terms of getting service done? Coolant flush, Brake fluid flush etc...?

Also, i am in the mississauga, ON region and bmw of mississauga seems a little sketchy at times to me (just a gut feeling that they try to rip me off more cuz i dont know much about the BMW's yet or a whole lot about cars in general. I like to drive a nice car tho so m happy).
Any recommendations apart from bmw of mississauga in this vicinity, be it dealership or any other good auto shop?

Thanks in advance!

It is good, and very inexpensive, to flush the brake fluid every year. For a conservative, over-engineered view o'stuff to do, Google Mike Miller Maintenance.

Dealership will have free coffee, nice lounge, maybe free wifi, loaner or shuttle service.
Indy place might have nothing and bench seat to sat in... call and find out. The more services you bundle together with indi the more saving you get. Dealership seems to charge ala carte even though they might already have the car up, wheels off, etc..

Thanks. going to give them a call tomorrow and find out some price differences.
just sharing - recently had to replace my windshield cuz it got a lovely surprise crack on the highway. One BMW dealership quoted approx $1900.00 and the other (about 1.5 hours drive from me) quoted $1000.00.
I thought BMW prices would be same all around.

Windshield you can get quote from http://www.safelite.com/ --- did you use car insurance to pay for it?

Unless you are dealing with these which has standard cost for older models:

Ya i used car insurance and the covered everything except for my deductible so it wasnt that bad on me. Initially they were'nt going to cover replacement done at the dealership but eventually they agreed upon it.
