you're also getting close to time for spark plugs.the manual says 37k miles for them,not under cbs,but mine were changed for the previous owner at 30k.
you're right,there isn't much guidance for reasonable maintenance from bmw,i've worked up a schedule on my own taking advice from mike miller's lifetime maintenance schedule,and a friend who is a bmw master tech.i hope to keep my car a long time,and plan to maintain it accordingly.
Thanks Robbie. This is really helpful.
