First service

I've had my '06 BMW 325 for a few days now and posted on here a few times.....I've read the owner's manual a couple of times and am now hunting for suggestions from my new best friends....you all

The car has 52K miles on her and I plan on taking her to my local dealer for some maintenance and wanna make sure I get all the necessary things done that may have gotten overlooked by the previous owner.....I'm thinking an Oil change for sure & perhaps a coolant change as well....Any thing else, in particular, given the current mileage I should be looking at?

coolvegase34 is an unknown quantity at this point
at 60,000 you will be looking at a regular service. Probably a service 2, which is more than a service 1. Every other 15,000 is a service, alternating between 1 and 2. You can verify this at the dealer, bmw shop, on here or in your owner's manual. Read the manual care fully, because it has important operating instructions. I found out that you should never warm up these cars, just start and go. Don't go full throttle when it is cold though.
