Preventative maintenance ideas

Hey everyone! I've been doing a lot of reading about carbon buildup being especially bad in 335i's. I just purchased mine CPO, but I don't know how it was driven before and thus can't even guess what the valves look like. I have 43k btw.

I'm definitely getting an oil catch can and new CP/BOV to keep oil out of the induction system and to remove pressure on the turbos. What else could I do to keep the car feeling young?

I was thinking about running a pint of Seafoam through her every couple of tanks of gas and having the chemical induction clean done semi-annually.

OIL CHANGE

Change every 5K with LL-01 oil -- best long term PM.

Spark plugs at 70k miles, new belt, and clean the intercooler(make sure it isn't blocked off by bugs, rocks, etc.) That's all I can think of. Oh and replace the injectors at 100k (speaking from experience off of my old car.)

It really is. You can read up all you want about how to please a woman, you can look at all the diagrams in the world, but just like the clitoris, you won't know what the hell an apex is before you actually find it.
