I know you might not be into the whole do it your self thing, but there is nothing on your list of items that wouldn't be really easy to do. I estimate all the materials and supplies to cost no more than $150USD if obtained locally and NOT at a dealer. As far as warranty issues I would just keep records of what was done, and maybe ask the dealer to put the bike on their computer for a readout and just pay for that service. $500-$600 is just too much to pay for routine maintenance/fluids in my opinion.
Front brake pads take me less than 30 minutes to install, but I know the BMW parts are expensive. I have not found a less expensive alternative yet, but I will.
That being said, when I had more income and less time I paid for service at the rate you are talking and just rode the bike.
