Guys, Got my 2009 335i 60k maintenance done by an Indy @ Issaquah.

Oil change
Spark Plugs
Air Filter
Differential oil change
Coolant change
Annual Inspection
Wipers

Total Cost $970

Indy recommended Tran fluid chance @ 70k-80k miles..

Throw in your .02 cents !

My two cents is all is fine except going 70-80k on the tranny fluid is a little too long in my book. I prefer 60k for tranny, differential and power steering fluids. I would go back and get the tranny and power steering done and then you are good until 120k (except for oil, brake fluid and coolant).

Was not sure if the stealership changed it. I agreed for the spark plugs to be changed.
Ken told me that , annual inspection is due in 2700 miles ( according to car computer ? )

annual check included brakes, cooling system, check power steering fuild etc and resulted in 1 fault for cabin sensor. They just cleared it as the part was not available.

Thanks for the input, Appreciate it.
You do realize that the "inspection" required by the car's computer is BS. Don't pay for this anymore as it is a waste of money. Just pay for regular oil, coolant, brake, spark plug, power steering, tranny and differential changes.
You must have the automatic...I, for some reason, thought you had 6MT...my fault. In any event, $800 is highway robbery. The automatic tranny fluid flush should be closer to $500. I would go to another indy and make sure that they use BMW's proprietary fluid. The automatic, I am told, needs to be refilled with only BMW approved fluid. It is costly, but your quote seems to be close to double what it should be. There is no 90k service in my opinion. The power steering, tranny and differential should be every 60k. The coolant every 3 years and brake fluid every 2 years. Oil every 7500 miles. That is it.
Indy Quoted $800 for Trans oil change .. Is that accurate ?

@ Alpine300ZHP -> Then what goes in to 90k service ?
