Key items for me ..
Oil every 5K
Techron fuel concentrate every 5K
Flush brake fluid every 2 yrs ( I use a fluid w/a higher wet/dry boiling point)
Flush radiator every 3 yrs
Differntial Fluid every 20K
This may seem excessive..but IMO cheap insurance especially if you are keeping the car for the long haul.
You got that right ... I like to call it "Preventive Maintenance"
In the end it does pay ... our e28 in a few months from now will be 25 years old and still runs well because of tender loving care
