Preventative Maintenance @75k

Hey guys

Car is coming up on 75k and I'm wondering what I should check. I'm probably going to do a tranny flush just because lol but also wondering about diff and gearbox and coolant. Should I also check belts? Car probably needs a brake flush but I'm just going to do that in the spring. Also, my replace cabin filter light is on, how hard is that to do and how necessary is it to replace on time?

Thanks guys! Car is 07 335i E92 6MT

PS

Car had HPFP and water pump replaced before I bought the car.

Cabin filter is a 4 minutes job. 6 bolts to remove. Its not critical, but some say that when the filter is full, it is hard on the blower motor and can cause it to fail (a major pain to replace).

Check belts etc, but if they don't look bad or make suspicious noises, just keep them.

If the coolant pump has been changed, coolant has been flushed at the same time. Usually coolant can stay for 3/4 yr. You can test it with an acidity strip.

I ordered 3 for the trans and 2 for the diff just in case.
I want to say I cracked open the 3rd bottle for the trans and it only took a couple cups worth more.
