Car service 4k 2009 e92 335i

My car is 2009 and only has 4560 miles on it. it is up for its 2 year service, however i have moved out of the usa and brought my car with me. What things do you guys thing they do on the 2 year check? Cause the BMW dealer is a little far away from here and it would be a hassle if i really have to go there.

I can change the oil myself.. but what else do you think they do?

Thanks
Victor

coolant flush , oil/filter change , balance tires , alignment (i think), brake check/fluid change, air filter change, cabin filter change, wiper blades.

couple of them are recommended i believe... but definately all fluid change for sure.

Coolant is "lifetime".
Balance tires and align only when needed (vibration, pulling, etc.)

The only things BMW recommends (and covers) are the oil/filter change, brake fluid change and possibly the cabin filter and wiper blades.

Only thing thing I am aware of tied to CBS two year calendar is brake fluid flush/replenishment. And, if you were still in the States, a low mileage annual oil change.

{EDIT} ^^^ What he said.

yeah I will change all fluids and the air filter is an injen intake so i will clean. It is 4.6k but i have enjoyed it a lot. Philly driving wasnt much, but now here its not very practical to drive my car so I bought another more practical car just to drive in Dominican Republic.

If you bought the car in the US and moved to Europe then your car now has the European warranty (2 years)

If you are under the 2 year mark, then you might want to get it checked by an indy mechanic to make sure that there aren't any issues that need to fixed under warranty. Low mileage is as bad (if not worse) on cars than high mileage.
