Personally, I'd be doing the transmission filter and fluid then. I have yet to see an E9x example, for sale used, that had this done by a prior owner. It's not relatively cheap to do at the dealer,...

Current mileage on the vehicle ? If you don't know the maintenance history, do a filter / fluid change on the transmission. That's probably the most important preventative maintenance you can do to...

Interesting. Very interesting. If a few more people chime in on this thread maybe I should send it to BMW NA and see what they say ? :D

I've also been using Mobil 1 for a years. Not in my BMWs though. Again, if you want to experiment, go for it.

Adaptations are "learned" adjustments that the transmission control module makes to shifting and shift points. Basically, the car "learns" how you drive, whether it's mostly in stop-and-go traffic,...

Yes, the N20 is known to suffer premature failure from a weak timing chain guide that snaps and breaks.

I'm just guessing here, but it sounds like your OE BMW audio head unit doesn't realize the vehicle's ignition is on. This is like when you just turn accessory power on but don't turn the car on. Your...

I'd have to go add it all up to know for sure, but if I averaged it out for the years I've owned it, I'm probably at ~$3.5K per year on my 2011 328i x-drive. That's catching up on maintenance that's...
