M5/M6 Fluid Servicing

Hello, I've just spent 4K USD on repairs for my car and don't want to go through that again.

My car was running rich so I had to change all injectors, o2 sensors, sparkplugs, and few other parts.

My car currently has 70k km (43k miles) on it. My question is, what fluids to I need to change right now to avoid any issues in the future?

Currently I am only doing the normal engine oil and filter servicing. Thanks.

Wouldn't harm to have a dct fluid change now if the car is driven hard regularly and not forgetting the diff oil every second engine oil change.
Check the steering fluid level,often forgotten.

Diff after every SECOND engine oil change, if you can't remember it ever being done then it needs doing.

I think every second oil change is recommended.
