so i just bought a 2004 330xi i dont even take delivery until today as there was some haggling as to how much my last car a 99 cobra convertible was worth

so im looking to find out about all the do's and donts with this 330xi the last bmw i owned was an 88 318i and i only had it for 3 months because it was problematic, but this one is new and everyone says bmws last forever and are a hoot to drive

so in short what should i look out for and any ideas for first upgrades (besides window tint lol)

Everyone is going to tell you go with maintenance first. The cooling system is prone to failure that means upper and lower hoses expansion tank water pump, if you have an auto you are going to want to change the fluid and filter, these cars are prone to oil leaks, so keep an eye out for that, there is a lot of plastic under the hood that becomes brittle and causes vac leaks when broken too, other than that its all about fluid changes man.. Brake fluid, differential, tcase in your particular model. Nice looking ride, take care of it and it'll take care of you.
