Looking for central Mass shade tree mechanic.

I can do most maintenance stuff. Brake pads, oil changes etc. But past injuries and age have crept up on me. Plus, I'm not super familiar with my first BMW having spent the last 25 years wrenching Volvo.

Anyone know of someone who wrenches E82? Looking to learn from people and willing to "sit, comment and watch"

Anything in particular you're needing/wanting to do? I just did my Eccentric Shaft Sensor, Valve Cover and Gasket, plugs, coils, intake air filter and silicone elbow this past weekend.

Nothing in particular now. Your basic maintenance stuff. I'll be doing an oil and trans fluid change in June. I'll be replacing the trans filter as well.

Just today I discovered that the valve cover is still leaking even though it was replaced by the dealer I bought the car from.

I'm not planning on doing any performance mods to the car other than perhaps an exhaust.

But as I said, it's my first BMW and I'd like to learn from someone who's done stuff.

It's just over 118k miles now. I'm thinking the brakes need looking at. Perhaps bushing, shocks, struts. That sort of thing.
