1st 100K in the books

Just passed the 1st 100K on my '06 e90-

1 "warranty repair" of leaking o-ring on the trans electrical connector

Just normal maintenance otherwise.

Hoping for the same for the next 100K

Just hit 90,000 (actually will hit it on the drive home tonight). My iDrive says I have a vehicle check in 2000 miles. Any idea what that involves? I've got no issues and my BavTech tool shows no fault codes. Should I just reset it, or is there anything extra the dealership would do differently?

BTW, I got 260K on my E36. I sold it to a friend who has clocked close to 300K now.

Can you guys post what maintenance you had performed on the car ie: Transmission flush? Coolant flush? Power steering fluid flush? Brake fluid flush? etc. and at what mileage. Thanks.

I got my car used with 55K so I don't know what was done previously. I do oil changes every 10K regardless of what the schedule says. I put new brake pads on at 60K and flushed the brake fluid. The rotors were about at the limit, and would have been below if I'd had them turned, but they were clean and true so I opted not to do anything until next pad change when I'll certainly replace them. That's about it. I did it all myself.

Gene,

I think the vehicle check is just an inspection- they look for codes, check stuff over, etc- used to be an inspection 1 on the old system- If you do your own work, reset and go on IMO.

Chriztofor,

Just followed the service reminder schedule with the exception of oil changes. My normal oil interval is 19K, I always changes once in the middle myself between 9-10K. No service other than the recommended, although I will likely change trans fluid, trans case fluid, etc this spring.

dre 2000,

Belt still looks OK, but probably due for a change

I purchased the 50k extended maintenance- so my last service was spark plugs at 99500. If you do this one yourself, be careful. The tech ripped one of the boots off of the coil pack- dealer replaced N/C- even took one from a loaner car to get me going. These are different than the older coil pack where the plug boot is separate from the coil. Go figure.

102K and rolling strong. In fact it performs best when you run it. Most $s spent at 100K service. Rear brakes and rotars changed at 80K front brakes and rotars changed at 95K-not bad. Sparks changes at 95K, had oil gasket leak-expensive at 90K.

Big items under warranty: Stirring column and radio issues.

Change oil at 6-7K or no longer than 6 months.

Taken a few weeks ago, I have 181,000+ now. It's currently sitting in the shop getting the crank sensor replaced. Other than that, no problems and routine maintenance.

I have 108 k right now and my mechatronics seeling sleeve is leaking. I will do the repair my self and it should be less then $70. Other then that the car runs great! I had three problems under warranty (valve cover gasket, water pump, starter) nothing major but not small either. I am hoping for the best I Plan to reach at least 250k on my 325i.

I think the n52 is a way better motor and last longer.
my e36 had 275k on it and its still running( sold it to a friend)
my e30 had 150k
e90 has 37k....
w203 has 151k
E53 has 190l
e46 has 120k.
yes many miles on our car
sister picked up a 2011 x5 3.5 N55 motor in april of 2010 and it has 20k

My cousin has 100k about and no big problems. I love how my buddies are like under 20k have transmission problems fuel pump problems/injectors and all sorts of bull shit problems with the n54 engine.

Wow! No water pump, valve cover, battery, or thermostat replacements?!
