Default In response to several members' email questions for more on service history

In response to several members' email questions for more on the service and repair history:

To date twelve oil and filter changes have been performed since new, always with synthetic oil (usually Mobil1 or Castrol Syntec), and averaging less than 6,000 miles between oil and filter changes over the life of the car. Receipts for all changes are in the service history binder.

Other commonly required E36 M3 items and the odometer mileage at which they were done (car currently has a bit under 71,000 original miles):

Radiator, cooling hoses, and expansion tank replaced at 69,128 miles
Last Minor Service (BMW Service Level I) was at 69,107 miles (less than 2,000 miles ago)
4 new Goodyear Eagle F1 tires installed at 69,107 miles
Last Major Service (BMW Service Level II) was at 60,220 miles (less than 11,000 miles ago)
Heater/AC control unit was replaced at 60,220 miles
Rear shock mounts and fan belts were replaced at 52,734 miles
Heater/AC blower motor resistor replaced in 2004 at 32,672 miles
Thermostat and plastic thermostat housing replaced at 28,943 miles (updated aluminum part)

Build date per the driver's side doorjamb emblem is April 1997. I hope this is helpful. If you have other questions, please don't hesitate to email or PM me. Thanks for your interest!

I am the third owner. I purchased the car from a medical practice partner of a lifelong friend of mine, and he purchased it from a friend of his, who was the original owner. Although I felt very comfortable with this history of a few owners (known to one another) since new, I asked about any history of accidents or theft when I bought the car and was told there were none; there have been no such incidents during my ownership.
