    E32 Basic Tune up?

    If I am missing this info posted somewhere pls lemme know. I'm looking to do a basic maintenance tune-up on an 89 735i? Of course plugs, air filter, belts and all but am wondering what other things I could be doing without going next level and removing valve cover? Is there a list of these things somewhere? TIA!
