My warrantee ends this weekend

I have made two reservations in different locations this week.
I think I need to get my car serviced as much as possible as long as it does not cost any money.
How should my car be checked up and what should be replaced before my warrantee is gone?
Brake oil? engine oil? What are the things that need to be checked out and be repaired?

Please, I need help on this.

You do realize when a dealership works on your car they document it in the BMW system. Then when you go to the next dealer they will notice what repairs the other dealer performed. If you are lucky the 2nd dealer will immediately notice what the 1st dealer did, otherwise you will wait 3 hours then the SA will tell you that you already had work performed on the car and send you on your way.

Now to be helpful, have your car inspected by an independent mechanic. Take that list to ONE dealer and have them fix it.

That's not a problem you can fix it 6 days a week if you want

Everybody's talking all this stuff about me now
Why don't they just let me drive?
I don't need no warntee
Fix it when I want to
That's my prerogative
