Yeah, I read Mango's thread and he seems a bit strident when it comes to replacement parts. For example, BMW recommends changing the spark plugs every 100k miles, Mango recommends 60k, and he doesn't give a reason. He also recommends to change the cabin air filter every 15k miles. Really? I know someone with an E46 325 and he hasn't even replaced the cooling system and he's at 118k miles. He's just done regular oil changes. When I get my car, I'm gonna replace the battery, voltage regulator, and the final stage resistor. After that, I'll be looking to replace the cooling system. But, keep in mind, I only drive 5-7,500 miles annually, so I guess these replacements may be less necessary to someone who drives 20k miles a year and takes their car to a track.
