Only big maintenance it had was throttle actuators. Since then i did

- Rod bearings
- Valve cover gasket
- Oil filter housing gasket
- Thermostat and waterpump
- All fluids
- Brake fluid flush
- MS Stage 2 intake, MS Pullies X pipe, Exhaust, Alpine Stage 2 tune, Ohlins R&T, GAS Monoballs

Car has been running great I just took it to a track day and beat on it for 7 20 minute sessions. Hope it lasts a lot longer! Current miles 203,5xx
How were those stock rod bearings when you took them out?

Getting my lists together on what I need to knock out leading up to spring.

09 e90 bought with 107k almost 4 years ago had rod bearings changed 3 days later as preventive maintenance, bank 1 actuator went out last week I am at almost 144k no other major maintenance needed, besides a battery and alternator. I change the oil once a year/10k.
I get random electrical gremlins like my adaptive headlights will get stuck but they reset everytime i restart the car but all in all shes reliable af.

*dont mind my christmas tree that was when the actuator killed itself*

I had some seepage from the o-rings on the back of the thermostat housing. The mechanic noted that my fan blades were starting to crack. I replaced the fan myself. Not bad in terms of time but there was added time to address some issues with some threaded inserts on my air box. Mileage is close to 187k miles now.

Just hit 53k miles on my E93. I guess with how crazy the market is now and buyers being even more crazy, mine is considered high milage. 😅 sorry couldn't help myself trash talking the market.

This is super impressive. Very reasonable list for 200k mile car that goes to the track.
