but other than that, is there anything major I should have looked at or replaced?
and yes servie 11 was complete 25k miles ago I believe?
appreciate the help
ps-- any more Philly M5 meets, or any days anyone is going to a track ~ would loev to go!
If not a dealer but an indy, I would have the "lifetime" fluids changed in diff and tranny (dealer labor rates way too high for difficulty involved, except maybe coolant flush noted below).
Spark plugs should have been changed in Service II, if not, they are needed. And brake fluid flush as well as coolant flush if not done at Service II.
Tranny, diff and oil can almost be done at once, since one of the time consuming items is letting everything drain. Brake fluid flush will take a little time as well as coolant flush.
