sumary of yearly maintenance ?

Did anybody ever make an excel file that summarise every single maintenance jobs to be done on e90 with price and service intervals ?

did bmw release that kind of document ? not just breaking parts and fluids, i would like a list of every thing to take into consideration starting from changing tires ...

TY

Not sure about prices (considering they are incredibly variable depending on where you go) but this should get you started...

This is what I did this year.

Oil change. $100, materials + tool (first time, expense over time)
Coolant change. $150.
Power steering fluid change. $100.
Transmission fluid change. $100.
Battery sometime in December. $250.
Spark plugs sometime in December. $50-100.

Next year?
F Diff Fluid Change. $100.
R Diff Fluid Change. $100.
X-fer Case Fluid Change. $100.
Brake pads and rotors, both axles. $500-1000.
2 Oil Changes. $140.


I'll PM you Mike Miller's Old School Maintenance Guide. It's what I'm doing.

My service notes... Most all of this is DIY.

thank you,

"A/C Compressor and Drier replaced" what happened ?

brakes need to be change every 75K ? Oh "Front Brake Service light on" so you just wait for the brake light to change the brakes ?

Beside brakes and new tires, I dont see anything costly.

You have a 335xi ?

It's an '06 325i. I just went past 190,000 mile this week. The A/C compressor siezed and the clutch exploded. Like I said in another post, just wait until the brake pad replacement indicator comes on to refurb the brakes. Keep in mind this is mostly DIY work and I got the suspension parts for $350.
