Arrow 1988 BMW M5 e28

Hey everone, I'm new here.

I just got my hands on a 1988 BMW M5 that has been in storage for years. It has approx. 90,000 miles. It was in mint condition before the storage and extremely well serviced. I want to give the car a tune up and general insection. I would love some advice as to what I should do regarding maintenece - What fluids to change, what brands to use, etc...

Here's my list so far:

Engine Oil + Filter
Compression Test
Transmission Fluid
Brake Fluid
Coolant Flush
Radiator (spout broke)
Power Steering Fluid
Differential Fluid
Fuel Filter
Fuel Rail Flush
Spark Plugs
Distributor Cap
Rotor Button
New Tires and Alignment. (Currently 235 45 17 Throwing Stars)
Air Filter (There's a cone, is OEM setup better?)
Hoses that look bad
Wiper Blades
Inspection of Belts
