It's my first post on here as a 2006 330D owner and I was after some help. The engine has 75k miles on it and is at a point where I think it needs a good service before I go for a remap. I'm fairly hands on and have made a list of things I believe need done now the engine is at 75k. I was hoping someone could add anything I have missed. I'm leaving the DPF alone for now and I will keep the swirl flaps on until I can do the DPF/flaps/EGR bypass and remap all around the same time.

I've tried to price it using average/good manufacturers but cheaper than the dealer parts, All in all this comes to £465, it contains a few things that are just a preventative measure. My temperatures in a 10 minute motorway drive are only getting to 60 so the thermostats are obviously shot and it won't be doing the DPF any use.
I don't have the money to take the car to a dealer or an Indy so will be DIYing it. If doing all this, would disconnecting the battery before hand elevate any fault codes?
If there is anything people can add that isn't outrageously hard to do or over priced I'd appreciate it. Also if anyone thinks the manufacturers chosen aren't any good please recommend another.
