What those dashboard symbols means?

Hi, I see the message on the dashboard of my BMW 325i 2006 - service due.

You can see them below.

I have 4 questions:

1. What is the each symbols means?
2. Can I check the condition of it on my own?
3. What is the approximately it will cost me to service each of item at authorized dealership?

4. Also can I wait with servicing or it's critical?

1- brake fluid flush. diy buy right brake fluid and invite a friend over to help. $20

2,3- emissions crap and inspection if needed $0

4- microfilter for ac. $50 and diy, a few screws in front of wipers, its under that cowling.

stay away from dealer unless on maint plan.

1 will keep your brakes from later problems. fresh fluid and all that. i would just do it next time i do the front or rear brakes. unless under maint plan.

2 and 3 dont mean shit

4 is up to you, it wont kill you to not change the MF on time

You folks sure have a way to answer a poster with a serious question. Let me guess, your all under 21.....

To the OP, your owners manual should explain the symbols...

Disregard everything above, just take it to a dealer. According to a co-worker of mine, who knows ‘a lot’ about cars, you can’t do any of your own maintenance on BMW’s.

Really? Does that include oil changes or spark plugs?

1) The D.J. is heads-down and into his tunes

2) Oh no! Watch out for the hurricane!

3) ...it's OK now, the hurricane is behind you. Suck my exhaust, hurricane!

4) You just drove through a hurricane - Please dry off your floor mats using a fan.

Oh good. I feel so realized. Next time I pay BMW $120 to do an oil change I'll ask them to rape my wallet for another $100 to do the air filter.
