Is the Maintenance schedule for E90 out yet?

Anyone know if BMW's Maintenance schedule for the E90 is availble yet? I checked the owners circle, and they only have up to 2004.

Owner's Manual is 2005, which I would like to be able to use to look things up on my computer instead of running out to my car when I have a question. I just sent an email to BMW owner's circle yesterday, asking who is responsible for updating their site and how useless it is except for tracking your car. The manual was provided to someone from BMWNA and it was loaded on a forum, so why not on the Owner's Circle? Maybe someone is just not doing their job. Maybe if enough of us complain, it will get someone's attention.

E90 uses condition based servicing not a schedule

Basically like fleet said the car will tell you when it needs to go in for service.

How about for the various fluids (brake, coolent) and things like spark plugs?

Also does the e90 actaully have a detection method for brake pads / rotors or is that more traditional where you start to feel it.

How hong should the brakes / rotors last in normal driving conditions? Or if I track it 2-3 times a years?

Brakepads now have life sensors, Discs get checked at each pad replacement

Sparkplugs last 100,000Km ( 60 thousand something miles) and are on the service indicator

Brake and coolant fluids are on for replacement every 2 years

yep, the on board computer (obc) stores all of the above info and more.

very easy to retrieve the info in idrive optioned cars. idrive, the wonderful communications device that for some unknown reason, many motoring magazine people cannot get their heads around.

all the best with your new car triton.
