    Welcome aboard. That is a fine machine you have. If you don't have any previous records on any maintenance, than the first step to do is to change the manual trans fluid and the differential fluid. You might want to change certain coolant parts as well.

    You can go to Bimrs.org or just go by word of mouth. Maintaining a good relationship with a shop is great, especially if they allow to install customer supplied parts. That could save you a bundle of money, though it would go right to Exxon/Mobil/Sunoco, etc... :(.
