2011 750i Recommendation Needed

I recently inherited a 2011 750i that my father bought in 2012. It had 8,800 miles on it when he bought it and now has 62K miles today. The car hasnít been driven hard at all but still consumes some oil. Checking through the BMW service records, I found and remember BMW telling my father the oil supply and return lines need to be replaced as they believe that is the main source of the oil consumption at this point. Iíve owed 3 BMWs myself and have a few good INDY shops I use in the Atlanta area that Iím going to have address this issue. While they are in there, Iím going to have them replace the coolant return lines as well.

Besides that, there really hasnít been issues with the car. (knocking on wood) Since these N63 engines have issues with heat, Iím planning on picking up a pair of Dinan Intercoolers (probably from the forums) in attempt to keep the temperature cooler overall. I may do a tune in the future but Iím not really looking for power as Iím only looking to make this car last another 60K since there really isnít a trend of these cars having significant milage.

Oil changes have been every 6K miles and Iíll keep up with that trend. I perform all other maintenance myself (trans filter & fluid, rear diff fluid, brakes, etc) but I wanted to know if anyone here had any thoughts or recommendations for keeping these N63 engines in good shape. Any information is much appreciated as always.
