Exclamation 4 straight questions - plz help

Right to the point:

I have 325i 2006 - sedan - Euro 2.5L - 218 BHP - Steptronic 6-Speed Auto


1. Oil change meter stuck on 15,000 mile : It does not decrease since 3 months now, WHY?

I once resseted the Service interval


2. Spark plug should be changed (Seen through iDrive), they are $110 why?

car has 52,000 miles now... yes thats alolt...I know
they used to be for $20 in my E46

3. Do I need to change differential oil given my milage? never changed

4. Sometimes while driving slowly in crowded areas, the Gear nocks when it changes gear from 2ed to 3rd, as if it through the gears hard not smooth

I'm so much worried from this, a bmw auto tranny is just shit since my E36, and very costly

what can i do to inspect it before it fails on me?

oil? filter? renewal? - what about LIFETIME TERM USED LATELLY BY BMW

THATS ALL....

I TRULY APPRECIATE ALL THE HELP FROM YOU GUYS.

do you have the option of the extended warranty by any chance? if so, I'd jump on it!

It is normal..... And then it will go down to 14000 miles and etc.... give this one sometime.

Technology. You can probably find some tune up kits on line that would be cheaper than dealer prices.

3. Do I need to change differential oil given my milage? never changed

I would..... but I am not quite sure if BMW recommends it. Read your service manual.

4. Sometimes while driving slowly in crowded areas, the Gear nocks when it changes gear from 2ed to 3rd, as if it through the gears hard not smooth

Sorry, this one I am not sure.

Good luck.

Honestly... if you act like an ass... no one is going to help you.

Right to the point:

1. Oil change meter stuck on 15,000 mile : It does not decrease since 3 months now, WHY?
There might be a service bulletin for this. Do a search here
I once resseted the Service interval


2. Spark plug should be changed (Seen through iDrive), they are $110 why?

car has 52,000 miles now... yes thats alolt...I know

I believe that the new spark plugs have a different technology to them and aren't your standard run of the mill plugs.
3. Do I need to change differential oil given my milage? never changed
Some say yes, others will say no. Supposedly if you change the fluid, it will ruin your diff. There's been a lot of past threads on this, even with the E46 AT trans.
4. Sometimes while driving slowly in crowded areas, the Gear nocks when it changes gear from 2ed to 3rd, as if it through the gears hard not smooth
That I don't know...
