What should get done in a regular tune up?
 
Since our E36's don't have spark plug wires, I'm not sure what has to get done in a regular tune up (other than having the spark plugs changed). What other things should get done in a regular tune up for our cars, and what would any of you recommend??

yes, but there are ignition wires.

anyway, for the tune ups,

-fuel filter
-cabin filter
-throttle body cleaned
-icv cleaned
-sparkplug
-coolent flush and refill.
