Maintenance Refresh 2nd owner

Does someone here know if I can do a maintenance refresh without going into the dealership. Or if someone works at a dealership that can help me out. I'm out of town due to work and my free schedule maintenance expires in 2 months and I won't be back in time. I'm the 2nd owner and the free maintenance doesn't follow. Any help will be appreciated. Thanks

If I were you, I'd do:

Oil Change
Diff Fluid Change
Manual Transmission Fluid Change (unless you have a DCT, then you don't need to do anything)
Spark Plugs
Brake Fluid
Check Tire Pressures
Look for leaks in the drivetrain
Check Coolant levels, esp the TMIC

Not too difficult and easily done as a DIY as well.

I can do it myself, no problem. I just want to take advantage of the 3 year /36 month free service but I'm the 2nd owner and I can't do it until I get a Maintenace refresh

First time bmw owner with new cpo 2018 340ix. I bought at 32k miles. I’m seeing conflicting oil change info. Should I be doing it every 10k miles or 5k? Thanks
