fuild changes?

hey guys/girls
i had a question i did a and didn't find much
I was planning on doing a fluid change on my two axles and transfer case and trans with bmw's fluid (so i don't deal with voiding warranty because of different fluids).i'm just under 30k miles. Is it better to wait to 50k miles and not take a chance with the warranty in case one of the parts goes out now between now and than. or just change the fluids and take that chance?
thanks

What could go wrong with fresh fluid?
The only problem is not knowing what you are doing but if you do then go for it.
