At that mileage consider trans fluid, differential fluids (two diffs), transfer case fluid. If coolant is still factory fill, I'd replace that too. Other things at that mileage would be spark plugs (assuming you have a gas engine, not applicable on diesel), fuel filter. While it is true these engines all have a timing chain and not a timing belt, there is still the accessory belt(s?) to consider and I like to change them at this time as well. This may seem a bit extreme, but it is the old school method that has carried several of my former BMW's into the 200k miles territory so I'm a believer. Expensive if you go to the dealer, likely less so if you can find a trustworthy independent, affordable of you DIY. I would skip the dealer.

If you want to learn more about BMW maintenance, Google Mike Miller lifetime BMW maintenance, read his white paper, draw your own conclusions and apply as you feel is appropriate.
