This weekend I plan on doing some work to my 98' 318ti. I get parts from the dealer for alot less than retail for example a part that retails for $125 I get for $80

The car just turned 36,000 miles so I plan on doing the following

1. Change the oil/filter Mobile 1 full synthetic grease all fittings
2. Clean the throttle body and idle speed control valve
3. New air filter (till I get my intake)
4. New PCV valve
5. New Spark plugs
6. New Fuel filter
7. Rotate tires/ check air pressure/ check spair


I will probably change the rear differential fluid a little later on

Is there anything else that you would add to the list?

It sounds like you are doing an "Inspection I" or even an "inspection II" refer to this web site for all the points to check:

Cool thanks for the info. I got my fuel filter today $19.50 and I have to pick up plugs tomorrow. I have been having a rough idle lately, and on the 318ti engine there is a motor on the side of the intake manifold that is making a noise so that will be replaced aswell.

When I bought this car everyone told me I was nuts and that repairs are going to cost an arm and a leg, but from what I have expierenced so far they aren't anymore expensive than any other car that I have owned. Plus I find BMW's fairly easy to work on, unlike some american cars.
