    Hello bro,

    You may refer to the E60 thread here http://www.bmwclubmalaysia.com/forums/index.php?threads/e60-parts-maintenance.21601/page-49 on maintenance etc.

    As a rule of thumb, once you get the car, check for leaks under the carriage, and zoom in to the parts that has oil stains. then, change all fluids (engine oil, transmission oil, coolant, brake oil). While its up on the hoist, check all bushings, tierods and arms, suspensions.

    Best to buy the car off a direct seller or owner, and ask for full maintenance records/receipts, so u know what has been done to the car, and what to be done next.

    all the best in ur search bro!
