Warranty ending next month on 22k miles 2010 M3. What should i have dealership do?

Hi guys,

Question is in the title. I know there are a few services between 30-40k and I'm trying to figure out what are some important maintenance items I should have done. So far through looking through this forum, I've compiled this list:

For a DCT M3:

-Diff Fluid
-Spark Plugs
-Oil Change
-Brakes
-Windshield Wipers
-Miscellaneous fluids
-New battery (My battery has been showing low charge for a couple weeks now)

Anything else you would recommend?

Thanks!

Do the Miscellaneous fluids for sure, you'll want to get all of those...

All joking aside, I'm fairly certain you can't just demand the dealer change/do anything you want under the warranty/maintenance plan. Did you mean you're willing to pay for the diff fluid change and these other items?

If so, 22k seems a bit premature for diff fluid and perhaps even spark plugs.

Of course I can't demand, but generally a nice SA will take care of some stuff because you're not using the rest of the maintenance plan. If I drove to 50k miles, they would have been changing the oil, filters, everything many times more. They save a bunch of money this way and they can gain some customer loyalty along the way.

edit: I just want to clarify, I don't want to discuss the logistics of getting the dealership to take care of whatever I want, because they will. I'm just asking what are the maintenance items between 30k-50k miles assuming you use all of your miles.

Seems like a good list if you can get all that accomplished would be a good deal.
