You might be able to find the answers easier by searching the forum using the keywords maintaince or repair. It will list all the problems that people have had and give you an idea for what to watch for. Otherwise changing the oil every 3k and make sure the rest of the fluids are changed in their proper mileages. It is hard to say what to watch for since we don't know if the car was abused before you or if you plan on abusing it yourself (track racing). If you bought the car from a traveling sales person the cars part should hold up, but if you bought it from a track racer, the struts and suspension might be worn out. Just some ideas for you. good luck in your search. MADBMW
