Question Recommended Maintenance Schedule for 2009 BMW 335i xDrive

Hi All,

Anyone have a recommended maintenance schedule for the 3 series? particularly the 2009 335xi?

I am just about reaching 70,000kms and have an oil change at 74,000kms.

After this I have 6,000km's to go until i'm out of warranty (including the maintenance) schedule.

I heard there are Inspection I/II's to do at around 80,000kms?

Any recommended schedule for all these types of inspections/checkups? besides oil changes? (i plan on doing oil changes at every 8-10,000km's)

I also plan on keeping this car for another few years at least if not longer and plan on putting alot of highway km's.

Thanks,

Rolando

Just and update, I finally took it in and since my car doesn't follow inspection I/II schedules (thats only for older bimmers) I paid approx. $250 for the service check and an additional $150 for a power steering fluid/flush which was recommended and some fuel injector coolant... All in all with taxes I was in for $500 CDN... I go to Budd's BMW in Hamilton... I was pretty happy since everything else was ok

Just follow the BMW service intervals, and do inbetween oil changes.

Wait? you had a power steering flush? On an e90? Which use's chf 11s? ummmmmmmmmm.......

Anyway as for in between oil changes, if you plan on keeping the car, they are very important! Hell I do mine every 10k
