I just check the fluids regularly and keep an eye on that battery. The heat and dust are tuff.

I've been using Castrol Syntec Since I got My ZX3 back in 2000 and Put in the Castrol in my SVT right away when I got it back in Feb 2008. I even used it when I had my first car: 1988 Honda Civic HB as well as my wife's prior car: 2001 Toyota Celica. I plan on using it on my wife new ride: 2007 Honda CRV. I'm also planning on buying a 2008 BMW 128i, and when the time comes, Castrol Syntec in that[thumb]
According to BMW, the two approved brands of 5w30 synthetic oils are Mobil 1 and Castrol Syntec.
Hope this helps.

talking of treatment i used the gas treatment bottles that i use in the
gas tank and some how i get better gas mileage, then i used the fuel
injection cleaner you can buy at the gas station or wal mart and
some how the stuff cleaned my full injection lines.
