Regular Maintances

Hi Guys,

I just bought a 2008 328I convertible from a used car lot with 74K on it. Clean carfax, two owners driving roughly 20,000 per year.

I am thinking on changing the following:
Oil & Filter
Coolant Flush
Air Filter
Cabin Filter
Spark plug
Transmission Fluid ???
Fuel Filter
Brake Fluid

Anything else I am missing?

Thank in advance

Honestly, and somewhat conservatively. The first thing I would do in your position is actually schedule a service at BMW, have it gone through and then go from there. Oil and filter sure, but see if there's anything you need to know...

Congrats!

A BMW is Just a Car, it doesn't make you smart, handsome, cool, or wealthy. Get over it.

They should be able to tell you everything that was done, everything that needs to be done and everything that will need to be done. It's all stored in the car, they can just get the readings off your key. From what I have learned on here, certain bmw recommended maintenance needs to be modified a bit like the 15k mile oil change they recommend, most people recommend doing it around 7.5k miles instead. Congrats on the car.

Garage List
No need for fuel filter change. It is part of the fuel pump assembly which is in the tank.

+1 on this. You need to find out what items, if any, are crucial to keeping your new ride in tip top shape. Hammer down the big stuff as much as your budget will allow and look for BMW indies to do the work as usually their pricing for the same job compared to the stealership can most times be significantly lower.

Grats man!
