First BMW... 2003 325xi

Just bought a 03 325xi w/ 59k miles... Looking through the maintenance schedule it looks like I don't need to do a think on her other than oil changes (plan on 5000-7500 miles based on posts I've read) until I hit 100k is that right?

pretty much correct. you may think of replacing the brake fluid, and checking rotors. pads of course you will change....

Pad are good, my mechanic told me the looked brand new so they must have been changed by the previous owner/dealer... Should I need to change the brake/other fluids before 100k miles?

i would. cheap insurance (but i also change engine, transmission and differential oil etc, WAY excessive).

brake fluid absorbs water, so it pays to change or at least flush every 2 years....

Don't forget coolant every 2 years and if you have an automatic transmission PLEEZE don't buy the factory bullshit about the transmission never needing service. They should have new ATF every 30-35K unless you like buying transmissions.
