I am interested in the answer to this question also. My 2008 E90 has 50K miles on it. Wondering what I need to do as far as fluids. I would prefer to do them myself if possible.

Brake fluids = 2 yrs
Radiator fluids = 4 yrs
Power steering = 100K
Rear diff = 100K
ATF = lifetime, bmw. I changed my @ 87K, cause I plan to keep over 100K miles. dealer changed for me or DIY if you could.

dealer followed my direction instead of them.

I told them just to drain out as much as possible, 2 quarts left in torque converter, filled, new pan, gasket, set of bolts, mechanic sleeve = $610 out of the door.

Actually ATF is not lifetime. Check your warranty booklet, it states 100,000 miles. I know, the pan states lifetime, looks like BMW changed their mind.
