    Hello All,

    I currently own a 2004 530i Sport, 6 Speed Manual, with 64,000 miles.

    At approximately 50K miles I replaced pads, rotors, fluid, coolant, fuel filter, air filter, cabin filters, tires, and regularly replace motor oil every 5k miles.
    The car operates well, though occasionally during the cold months I hear a quite noticable rattle at start up, which fades as the engine warms up.

    I'm hoping to keep the car for a few more years, so I'm looking for some suggestions on preventative maintenance: fluids, filters, belts, plugs, etc. As well as any suggestions for any fair and reputable repair facilities in or around the Chicago area.

    In advance, thank you very much for your assistance.

    I take my e30 to Andy Grycuk at Precision Auto Repair, Inc. 3034 N. Central Avenue, Chicago, Illinois 60634-5310. His telephone is 773-622-3311. mail@precisionauto4you.com

    He has performed many repairs on my vehicle in a capable and competent manner. I believe he charges a fair price for his work.

    Although he is not a magician, he is a good mechanic.
