My Ride: 2004 BMW 530i
Exclamation New and Proud E60 Owner

Hello to all E60 owners!

I am a proud owner of a 2004 530i. I bought the car with 127k miles. It was my uncle's car and he has given the car routine maintenance throughout the years. I however, do not have the convenience of being on the east coast as I am in the Air Force stationed in Davis-Monthan AFB, Arizona.

I have found an indy BMW shop that is seems like a well recognized and respected shop here in Tucson, Arizona. My question to all of you is what type of maintenance i should do to my car now that it is at its 130k mark. Any suggestions besides the usual fluid (oil and transmission), spark plugs and filters (fuel + cabin +oil)?

ANY insight is really appreciated!!

Thanks to all!!

^^^agree. WP, hoses, belts, thermostat. remove DISA valve, make sure flapper pin is firmly in place. check for engine oil leaks. change diff fluid.

good luck with the car.

thanks to you all!
.. they inspected the hoses, and they look good, the water pump looks good as well. I will do the diff fluid asap.
