Maintenance for E90 and headlight bulb

Hi guys,

I can't find any information for preventive maintenance schedule for my '08 3er. mine has about 60,000kms and Im wondering if should I need to change the following:

- Transmission fluid
- Power steering fluid
- differential fluid
- fuel filter
- Cabin filter
- change brakes ( brakes still has about 20,000kms based on on board computer)

I was told by the dealer that my transmission fluid doesn't need to be changed until 100k as well as the power steering.

What do you think?

Also I would love to change my E90's halogen headlights to a superwhite ones. any brand would you guys recommend? or this is a no go?

Thanks so much

Stay away from the halogen bulbs found at CTC or walmart (unless they are standard replacements, not ultra white).
For 'high-end' bulbs, there are plenty of options if you search. Xenesis is an example that comes to mind.

for inexpensive white bulbs you can look into the GP Thunder Bulbs

For any future readers, the OEM halogen bulbs are $10 each at in comparison to Cdn Tire, which sells them for $20 each. I thought about the GP Thunder bulb, but I was not confident as to how long they would last. I read max 6 months.
