1st time new owner 128i


I'm a first time BMW owner and this is my first car. I have a few questions that I hope some experienced owners can help answer. Thank you for your time.

1. I will be picking up my car in 2 days(very excited). Do I need to get it detailed ?

2. What kind of regular maintenance is required? (on a weekly/monthly basis)

3. I know I need to get the car detailed, how often is detailing required? Any suggestions for a Chicago detailer who won't rip me off b/c I am a female

4. I have little or no car care knowledge so please provide all the tips you have even if it seems like common sense. Such as always filling up premium gasoline and not going through a auto wash i know these seem like common sense but remember common sense is not that common.

Thanks again for taking the time to read/respond or redirect me to a existing forum topic.
