Here is my final follow-up to my Just Venting Thread. You may want to check out the previous post here.
I just completed the 12K service on my 4 year old LT. I bought it a year ago and put more than half of those miles on her.
In a nutshell the local BWM dealer wanted 1650.00 for the service with one rear tire. I did the whole thing for about $600.00 not including the Paul Sayegh's videos, the previously broken left mirror and a few tools. I attached a picture of her stripped down to show the point where I got nervous.
Replaced Diff fluid
Replaced Trans fluid
Replaced Engine oil and filter
Replaced Air filter
Replaced Spark plugs
Remove and grease shifter linkage
Grease other fittings
Replace left mirror
Tether both mirrors with steel fishing line
Run new audio cable for radar detector
Total time 5 hours of work. (Does not include 2 hours driving around trying to find a 14MM Allen wrench or clean up.)
Road tested, no leaks, runs great and only one screw left over. By the way, the coolant, plugs and air filter could have gone another 12K no problem.
I would like to make a special shout out:

I am also reposting my final update to the Torque and Measurement conversion file as well.
