There is a DIY video on BavAuto that shows how to do it (older BMW but same procedure)

Hi guys thanks for the reply. Ok I believe my fluids were changed under warranty when I had about 40k so it has only been about 60k since my fluids wwre changed (I believe I saw this in my service records). Actually, yesterday I opened the reservoir and my fluid looked fine, not grimmy or anything, although I did not check the color since its hard to see it inside the reservoir. I will check again. What color should I look for? Green, or Redish?

On a different note, I need to replace my spark plugs I am due now at 100k.

Yesterday I went to the dealership since it was on my way and quickly asked them for a quote on changing my spark plugs....I laughed at them....

guess how much??? Yeap freaking $480.00 dlls hahahaha.. hell no.. I will do this myself... I can get the spark plugs at 60 dlls
