My deal is done for a 2002 BMW 325i with 100k KM (Mystique blue +
beige interior) for $15K Canadian. No alloy wheels and no moon/sun
roof. The car is in good condition and I think its not a bad deal.
I am trying to find the maintenance schedule for it like preventive
maintenance, when to get new brake pads etc etc. From where can I find
it? (or may be its in the manual that will come with it?)
I have always used Honda in the past and am very new to BMW. Any dos
or donts for this?
This is the standard maintenance that the dealership follows:
But most people who actually plan on keeping their cars think that these
intervals are too long and do some of it twice as often (like oil changes
There is a sensor in the pads... you will get a warning on the dashboard
when the pads wear out.

Plenty good with the Axxis pads, in any case. No more filthy wheels.

Thank you everyone for the replies. They were really helpful. Based on
this I have confidence that I will have not much troubles with the BMW
if I buy now.
I was supposed to pick up from the dealer yesterday but he called me
and informed that the vehicle got an accident when they took it out to
gas station to fill up the tank. I went there and the front bumper,
front head light and driver side fender has been damaged. No damage to
the frame. Dealer offered me to either cancel the deal and he will
refund my deposit and will try to find a good deal in my price range
OR he will have it fixed by new BMW parts but will not give me any
discount. I have decided to take my deposit back. I hope he will
deposit my money back in my credit card tomorrow.
Now I am back in search mode again. If you guys know some good deal in
GTA area, please let me know.
