Tune up advice?

Hey Guys, I just purchased my first bmw used from a friend of a friend and I'm looking for some advice for a full tune up. It is a 2009 335i with xdrive 6 speed manual coupe. The car has 99k on it and I got it for a steal. Looking to do complete tune up and make sure the car is in good running order. Fluids flush & fill? Plugs & coil packs? Oil change? What brands are good for the car what brands arent, etc etc. Unfortunately Im am very uneducated when it comes to bmw's but am used to working on cars so I have a good diy ability. Water pump and thermostat were changed at 80k. Thanks for any/all help.

Stick with OEM plugs and coils, Mann filters, I use and have in all my BMW's Total Energy 5/30 or 5/40 weight oil. I do trans and differentials at 45K then again at 90K and 40K after that. Brakes - I prefer Stop Tech rotors and pads. Hope this helps

I use BMW OEM parts and fluids for the most part. There probably are some comparable brands, but it is easy enough to use OEM. Look at https://www.ecstuning.com/ for some good prices on OEM parts and fluids. You might be able to negotiate 10% to 15% or more off parts and supplies from your dealer, especially if you have an active BMWCCA membership. Welcome to the forum and enjoy your car.
