As per Mike Miller old BMW schedule is pretty much like all the typical schedules for cars before free maintenance which means as little as the manufacture can get away with . (which means changing them at 30 to 60k)
Redline oil is good stuff they have and app at there website that will tell you what you can use .
Be sure to use Pentosin for the power steering fluid the type is indicated on the fill cap.

Also there are sub boards here for DIY , maintenance and a bunch of other stuff.

Thanks!...I know its a well covered subject...but I am trying to boil things down and be a smart shopper if at all possible....Transfer case seems to be the only one with just one choice for fluid!....

appreciate the response.
