    Spark plugs/wires, air and fuel filter, clean the MAF and throttle body, replace PCV valve (if you don't have a catch can installed) and a good fuel system/injector cleaning with Sea Foam or something similar.

    A little different than above: Plugs and wires -- be sure to use a little anti-seize on the plug threads and a glop of dielectric grease in the plug boots. When you install the new wires, you shoud hear/feel one "click" on the plugs and two "clicks" on the coil packs. Clean the MAF with CRC Spray MAF cleaner and shoot the throttle body as well. Replace the air filter with either a quality paper filter or a nanofiber filter, such as the Amsoil Ea filter. Avoid oiled cotton gauze filters. Replace the fuel filter -- it is located under the car, driver side, in front of the rear axle. You will want to relieve the residual fuel pressure by depressing the Schrader valve on the front of the driver side fuel rail, using a rag and safety glasses. If your engine is north of 70,000 miles you should replace the front O2 senders. Bosch P/N 13111 senders work well and have a nice long harness that works great with headers. Under the car, check the condition of the motor and transmission mounts and also take a look at the u-joints. Flush the cooling system and replace the thermostat and/or hoses if they are 5 or more years old. Do not use a chemical flushing agent, simply run clean water through the system and be sure to drop both block drains to completely remove the old coolant. Inspect your belts and replace if needed. The oil in the rear can also be changed, using LSD additive both torsen and non-torsen. Transmission fluid may also be changed, replacing the filter if you have an A4. Flush the brake system and install new fluid -- the use of a MityVac simplifies the process and makes it a one person operation. Lastly, the caliper pins on the brakes should be cleaned and lubricated with synthetic caliper grease.

    Since our car has an A4... I can honestly say that I haven't a clue on M6 fluid recommendations. Sorry.

    It's ok. Mine has 59k on the stock fluid so mine as well do it. Will post up a new thread and see what gets the most votes. I ran Redline ATF in My M3 and thought it worked great. But I don't know about the T-56

    I run Redline in our C3 Corvette -- but that is a Muncie 4 spd.

    Regular ATF is fine in manual transmissions.
