New to me 2005 BMW X5

My buddy just got a hand-me-down from his rich sister --- a 2005 BMW X5. I think it has 90K miles. I'm trying to help him manage the car's maintenance. The owners manual I found online does a poor job of telling the DIYer what fluids and what schedule is needed for maintenance. Can someone give me the Cliff Notes version of when fluids and filters need to be changed and which fluids are specified? Please include both the manufacturer's recommendation and what you folks suggest. I tried searching but I found some of the information made no sense.
