You forgot the micro filter (unless it isn't anywhere near four years old) but that's what my car got on it's second service.

The micro filter gets changed every two years (approximately) and as my services have been at that interval, it got done with the oil service each time. This time (in November) the CBS said service required but still said 8,000 miles for the oil so it was basing the advice on the time related element.

Fuel filter is every 3rd oil change I believe so not sure why it's required on your second. I may be wrong though

Ok i managed to find the answer as my nice Grassicks dealer left the list in the service book from last service printed off from the BMW CD Thing.
Anyway its every 3rd oil service for Fuel filter
and only change air filter if its dirty
Microfilter needs changed every oil service,so once again a dealer called John Clark has given false information (not that i would of used them anyway) saying that since its my 2nd oil service it needs air filter and fuel filter changed,so ok it may need air filter this year,but wonder how much extra it would of been to change fuel filter
