Thanks
My brakes started squeaking recently too. Were you able to get them to replace the pads and sensors replaced within warranty?

Have you tried rebedding in the pads properly?

No mention of the serpentine belt... Is there a particular mileage/time to have it replaced or is it just based on inspection for wear/age?

I've found a few recommendation saying to change the belt, tensioner and pulleys at 60k. Mine started to squeal and the bearings in the tensioner started to go bad at 63k... Just replaced everything this past weekend. I assume the life/mileage is the same on the 128i.

I've seen a bit of discussion on this topic as the cars get older. Here is my general maint. plan:

YMMV - this is just what I use, not official BMW.

Gangplanks Maint Sched:
Oil: 0w-40 or 5w-40 ("LL-01" for BMW)
Oil change: 5-6k mi.
Air filter: 2 yrs / 24k mi.
Brake fluid: 2 yrs / 24k mi.
Power steering fluid: 2 to 3 yrs / 36k mi
Coolant flush: 3 yrs / 36k mi.
Cabin air filter: 4 yrs / 45k mi.
Spark plugs: n55 = 60k; n54/n55 w/ PPK = 45k mi.
Differential flush/fill: 45k-60k mi.
DCT trans. flush/fill: 46k-60k mi.
Water pump, T-stat, rad. cap: 5 yrs / 60k (as preventative maint.)
Fuel filter: 60k-80k (in fuel tank)
Belts/hoses: as needed or 100k mi.

Updated...

I'm just under 65k miles, and me "service" has been overdue for 6000 miles.

Coolant reservoir was replaced this past spring. So coolant flush/refill was performed then. At the same time he either did brakes fluid or power steering fluid - I need to check which.

Got new spring/dampers/FSB w/ bushings, and RSFB 2 weeks ago. New tires last week. Tire shop said brakes check okay.

Rear brakes have 1800 miles left in them. Fronts still have 22,000. StopTech's are sitting in the garage waiting for the wear indicators to signal "time."

Tonight: Changed the oil, oil filter, cabin filter, and spark plugs. Cleaned and oiled air filter. Brake fluid is clean and about 1mm down from Max.

I have a guy who will clear the code if I can show him all work performed.
What else do I need to do/inspect to consider the ~60,000 mile service "done"?
Thanks!

Out of curiosity, how much did these maintenance item cost you? I'm mulling over whether it's worth the $$ to get the BMW maintenance program extension to 100k miles. thanks!

Oil is $23 for 5 quarts at wally-world (used 6.5qt); oil filter was $10; spark plugs were just under $10/ea (58 for all 6), cabin filter ran me $21. I also ran out of air filter cleaner and oil so that was $13 combined. So $130 plus ~ 4 hours of my time instead of paying a local indy $5-600.
I guess I bought BMS' $20 plug socket, too.
I didn't bother asking the dealer how much a service runs, but one of the local tuners noted that there's one at 60k mi and another at 65k.
(I've already done tranny fluid, and had the coolant flush recently when my reservoir popped. Brakes coming soon.)

How do you feel about grease under your nails?

Thanks for the info! I'm mechanically inept, plus I lack the garage space/ tools :-) -- which is why I'm considering the maintenance program. But given that I have less than 25k miles currently, I'm not sure I will drive enough mileage to make the maintenance program worth it. Appreciate your pricing info though!

I bought mine thinking I was only going to drive it about 6k miles/year. So far, with me moving a few miles north, my office moving several miles south (commute is 23 miles each way, compared to 2.5 at purchase time,) and the 1 being so adept at touring that I've taken a bunch of unplanned road trips - in 16 months I've put on some 18,000 miles.
Not sure how much they're charging for "extended maintenance", but if it includes a clutch & set of brakes like the original it would be hard to pass up.
Even without, if I was offered such a thing for a couple grand I probably would have taken it. Especially if I wasn't into DIY. Alas, I picked mine up at an Audi dealership, and it was 3 weeks out of warranty.

Good point - yeah I was quoted a little under $2k for 72 month/ 100,000 miles, but I was also thinking of getting their extended service contract (i.e., the extended warranty) - which costs around $3k. Didn't want to spring for both, and since I have DCT, I'm especially worried if something goes wrong with it (was told that it was at least $10,000 to replace, since the dealer doesn't even have a way to repair it).
