60k service 128i

My 128 N51 is coming up on 60k miles and i'm looking to see what else you guys would recommend. Along with my oil change i plan on doing a brake flush, coolant flush and throwing in a new cabin filter. I've read some guys replaced plugs but I'm not sure if that is necessary yet. Any input is appreciated. TIA

I would change your spark plugs - even though they can go to 100K, they make such a difference on how the engine runs. I would also change your trans and diff fluids/oils. Your shop(or you!) will need a fluid suction tool to get out the old diff fluid. Also change your engine air filter and check your brakes for wear.

Thanks Dack. I changed the air filter @ 45k (that was fun) how often do you replace yours? Gonna hit up my local dealer and load up this weekend, plugs and all.

I'm at 76k or so and just changed the Tranny fluid - went with Redline D6 since that's what their site recommends. So far so good. The original fluid did not look bad at all fyi.
