New owner...

I am the new owner of a 2007 335i auto coupe. I have been reading the owners manual and getting familiar with the car and the upkeep of the car.

I want to baby this car as much as possible. I only drive about 6k miles a year, so I would like to keep this car running great for a long time. This is my first BMW, and I am not very car savvy when it comes to proper upkeep. I know oil changes, brakes, stuff like that, but is there any specific things I should know about the BMW to keep it in excellent mechanical shape for a long time?

I know when something needs to be done, the computer will alert me, but I just want to make sure there is nothing I am missing. This is a very general question so I was unsure of what to search for, if there is already a thread on this I apologize for repeating an already asked question.

Coils and plugs go quickly on the 335i from what I've heard and read. Also watch for high pressure fuel pump (HPFP) and water pump. I suggest buying a Bentley manual for around $100, it lists suggested maintenance intervals and has a wealth of information to arm yourself with so you don't get screwed over by the shop if you're not much of a DIYer.
