CPO Ending

I have a 2013 328i E93 with 65,000 miles and the CPO coverage is ending soon. The only repairs I have had made so far under the CPO is a cup holder and leaking oil filter housing gasket. I have replaced the spark plugs and coils on my own. Is there anything else a dealer will pretty well replace if I take it in before the end? Anything I should have them check? I would like to avoid as many future expensive repairs as possible in the future.
Thanks

See what you can negotiate with your SA
I got new spark plugs even though they werenít due
If your brakes pads are nearing their end of life even if the brake sensor has not been triggered, try to get them done. Oil change if itís close

I'm looking for CPO fixes. Normal maintenance is not covered.

Apologies
I had forgotten I had a maintenance agreement on top of the CPO warranty. Thatís where I got the items mentioned done just before it ran out

Pretty sure BMW ain't gonna replace parts that ain't broke just so you can be covered to replace them for free.

And any other high ticket parts are not thing they can just 'check', like fuel pumps, turbos, etc.

The dealer will only FIX that which HAS BROKEN, not anything that is functioning just fine...CPO is a 'warranty' ('broken stuff'), not a maintenance service policy.
If there are open recalls, that can be done.

Also a heads up ..... taking your car in and asking the dealer to "check it over" invites a diagnostic fee ..... taking it n with a list of your identified issues should result in them correcting or responding normal function found.

I think my point was missed. Sorry for not being clearer. For example, if the oil leak hadn't been noticed, the gasket wouldn't have been replaced. It didn't effect the performance and I probably wouldn't have noticed it until the belt had oil all over it. There are apparently other deficiencies in the E93 non-turbo motor that fail and can be checked before they stop the car, right?
Not looking for free repairs, just don't want something to be unnoticed before the CPO runs out.

Just like the others said, they can't fix or replace anything as a preemptive measure if it ain't broken, besides your regular maintenance stuff (i.e. oil changes, etc.), so you have to deal with it when it happens after your CPO expires.
