I know people generally refer to a tuneup when they do the routine maintenance stuff. eg

Oil change, Coolant flush, Spark plugs changed, Tranny fluid changed, Differential fluid... Check Brakes (Rotors and pads) Of course replace if necessary. I think it's pretty much the stuff BMW would refer to in inspeaction II.

Anybody else wanna help me out:confused:

Ok "tuned" would usually referring to engine software tuning

"tune up" is usually spark plugs, t/b clean, inj. flush
