How much money should I set aside each year?

My 2008 335i (49,000 on odo) will be out of warranty in 1 year and 2 months.
I'm currently a student, and I work part time two or three days a week at an accounting office. I have a heavy course load, and working between classes and studying is "difficult". When I have enough saved up, i'll take a break.
How much money should I set aside for maintenance/repairs? Is it safe to assume that $1000 is enough every 8k miles/year?

Thanks

Edit: Tires, gas, and insurance will be footed by my wonderful parents. Assume I do oil changes, air filter replacements, brakes, and spark plugs myself over the weekend. And I've already replaced the car's battery.
Pretty much just looking at potential repairs costs!
