BMW N54 335i Maintenance Schedule

From owning my 2007 BMW N54 335i, and working on other N54’s I’ve compiled a road map of sorts listing maintenance items and average mileage change. The N54 is a solid motor and can quite a bit of abuse, but to keep enjoying it you’ll need to stay on top of the maintenance. This is not a bible of sorts, just a recommendation of what my current maintenance schedule. I’ve purposely excluded items outside of the function of the motor, such as the transmission, differential, and suspension components. If you have any suggestions etc, please feel free to comment below.
