At tips or recommendations would be appreciated (esp. of the prophylactic nature . . . transmission fluid?)
For your car (being a 2008) you should refer to pages 66 and 67 of your owners manual, it will guide you as to the condition and requirements. Your service manual should be your first point of reference (some dealer service guys have no clue so you should be informed before you take your car in for service).
Case in point ... when I took my previous M3 with MT in for the break-in service I had to point out to the dealership service supervisor that an oil change of the transmission was also to be done. He insisted only the engine oil and differential oil requires to be changed. Until I showed him the manual.
Bottom line don't trust others too much inform yourself!
