    Recently upgraded from a 1998 E36 328i to a CPO 2011 E90 328i with the sport suspension and 6- speed manual. Only concern so far is the long service intervals recommended by the Condition Based Service system. Glad to be among fellow BMW owners.

    Welcome to the club & forums! If your car isn't a lease (and maybe you'd opt to even if it is), you may want to go for something like 5k intervals on the oil changes (full synthetic oil). From your other post, blizzaks can certainly help, traction control has its limits; depending on what your dealing with (winter driving conditions in your area), sourcing a limited slip differential might be worth considering despite the very substantial expense.

    Send me an e-mail (or send one to Mike Miller) and you'll get his Old-School Maintenance Schedule. Oh, wait—these days he's calling it the Lifetime Maintenance Schedule.

    Are you going to end me an e-mail, or what?!

    Hello,

    I am hoping the 'Old School Maintenance Schedule' might be available for my 2008 e93 M3. I am not comfortable with the intervals the car is giving me (9000k until next oil change???) so I must be Old School.

    Further adding to my anxiety is the fact then when I purchased it (33k mi) it was a quart down on oil. However, the car was telling me that the oil level was 'ok.' Maybe this is within normal limits but, IMO, anyone who knowingly drives a car that is a quart low on oil is asking for trouble.

    If anyone knows if the Old School service recommendations exist for my car I would appreciate a link.

    AFAIK, the OSMS ought to be generally applicable & is not model-specific. Email Mike Miller (see his column in Roundel) or Satch's post above.
