Hey guys,
Just got my baby that I have wanted for sooo long. Its a steel grey 2002 330ci - sports package, premium package, M wheels, M steering wheel -- very nice! Being my first bimmer and first car, I was wondering what all I should do to keep it clean and running in top shape. For example, when I should change the oil and brake pads etc. and how do you condition the leather and when should you wax it ... It has 36000 miles on it and I want it to stay in perfect condition! Thanks a lot!

ANDREW

i like to change the oil every 3000 mi. or 3 months, brake pads when ever they need it (just look at them), coolant every 2 years, i use lexol leather conditioner on mine, the first time i waxed my car i used a clay bar and did a mothers 3-stage wax. i think most people wax every 6 months but others more like 3 months, you should not have to re clay the car every time, every other year or so.


i know bmw says change the oil at 14,000 or somthing, but i don't trust them, i have explained why in an earlier post.

nice car, i have one almost like it.

Another good wax to get is from griot's garage.
They have some awesome products and they are all top notch!!!

Their clay is AMAZING and the Speed Shine is freakin sweet to use after each wash. Feels soooooo smooth.

Later Guys
