    Maintenance questions

    Hi everyone

    Just getting our M5 ready for a major maintenance session and have a few questions.
    Can someone post best type of gearbox synthetic and weight as well as for the diff?
    I believe Redline is best, it is also what i use in my 318is.
    heres a list so far:
    fan belts
    rad hoses
    coolant flush
    thermostat
    synthetic oil change
    fuel, oil , air filters

    This is a car we just purchased awhile back and it does have some maintenance issues. Suggestions most welcome. Valves were adjusted at dealer not too long ago.
    Thanks everyone.
