Question My CPO Ends this month. Things to check?

So the CPO ends this month on my 2007 335i. I have owned the car for two years and haven't had any major problems with it. Fully stock.

Prior the warranty end, I am planning to take the car to the independent BMW certified shop for the inspection. They suggested a standard yearly visual inspection. My goal is to make sure I'll fix all the problems while still on the warranty.

Need your guys advice on where and what components I should ask them to pay the special attention to during the inspection?

Thank you.

I did this prior to my CPO ending. Good idea taking it in for a PPI as they should be able to spot most issues. Mine caught an oil filter gasket leak which was replaced under warranty. Other common leaks could be the valve cover gasket as well.

Thanks, good point!

Do you guys think I should ask to inspect HPFP, injectors and wastegate? Are these modules easy to diagnose?

The door locks fuse blew on my '08 328xi recently and trapped my passengers. Seems to have happened to hundreds of e90 owners, so you might want to have them swap yours out (20A instead of 15A). Mine was #73, but yours I think is 50-something.

There's a TSB, SIB-51-19-07.
