Tune up to do list (need input)
I used the search bar and didnt find a Tune up checklist thread, and im hoping I can get some input from everyone. I just bought a 2001 325ci and want to do some tune up work on it.
Can someone tell me if im missing any major things to do. While i have the car up for the day i want to get as much tune up related things done to it as i can. I have the following...
Transmission Fluid - Purchased (Royal Purple)
Filters: Oil, Air, etc - Need opinions
Oil Change: Castrol (Opinions)
Spark Plugs and Wires?
Im not sure what else there is to do, the cooling system was just maintenanced, the breaks were done, and the syspension was just done with a 1.5" drop. Any input would be great.
