Smile A question- Newbie

A new 2009 328i owner any suggestions and advice from veteran owners of 3 series car care and maintenance tips. My previous cars were all Honda Accord EX so this is really an adjustment! I welcome your feedback.
Regarding gasoline I do 91 or higher octane but is there a different amount brands such as Shell, BP and Cheveron, etc....

See Mile Miller's old school maintenance schedule or write to him and he'll send it to you.

Fuel look into top tier fuels and use 91+.

We've discussed "top tier" gasoline in here extensively and very recently. Do a search and you'll be rewarded.
