E92 328I Maintenance question

I just bought my e92 328i with 58K miles on it, it's creeping close to 60K miles and i got a maintenance light so I have a few questions.

I read through the PDF manual (car didn't come with one) and it doesn't really explain what needs to be done or provide any useful information

is this 60K service an inspection 1 or 2? or around how much is considered fair to get this done at a shop? I really want to keep my car in good running condition so i don't want to skip out on anything, but with that said I don't want to waste money either. What items need/should be done at 60k? i know many things are based on the condition (ie brake pads etc..) but what major engine componet should be serviced at this time?

thanks!

BMW did away with the Inspection 1/2 business on the cars with CBS. It's called a "Vehicle Check" now and I don't think theres a list floating around of what exactly it involves.

The vehicle inspection is basically nothing but a vehicle check, they change your air filter, cabin filter, oil change, and fluid top off. You can do this yourself if your a DIY person and they replace anything that is worn out but at your expense if your out of warranty.
