High Mileage Maintenance?

I recently bought my first bimmer (yay!) which is a 2009 328xi coupe 6MT. It has around 70k miles on it. It is also CPO so I'm not worried for the next two years, but I'm wondering what sort of maintenance I should be doing at this mileage.

Should I have something specifically looked at besides the yearly routine maintenance?

Check the last time all the fluids were done. Also you can google mike miller mantenance and you will get a better idea of what you should do.

I'm pretty sure they did all the fluids when they made the car CPO. It was a lease return with a busted windshield and such so they went over all the inspection points.

Thanks for the heads up on that maintenance manual. Interesting stuff.

70K isn't really high mileage. Check the CVJ boots. Drive it and consider saving some money for cooling system and suspension, which have in the past come around the 100K mark.

No way "they" changed the coolant, trans and diff fluids. "They" consider those lifetime fluids. You might have fresh oil and maybe brake fluid if it was due.

Google Mike Miller BMW for a maintenance schedule.

Google Mike Miller BMW for a maintenance schedule.

http://www.google.com/url?sa=t&rct=j...,d.cGE&cad=rja

It has the history of free maintenance and also a very thorough
schedule for keeping the car in tip top shape.

Change all the lifetime fluids would be a basic suggestion.

You must use BMW fluid for the transfer case
You might want to change out the plugs.
Its easy to change out the air filters cabin and engine I would check those at least.

By the way changing the transmission fluid in a manual to Redline D6 will
really smooth out the shifts.

See redlineoil.com
