Questions About 1986 BMW 325es’s Transmission

  • Is it bad to ride the brakes in your BMW? Riding the brakes (keeping your foot lightly pressed on the brake pedal for a long time) can lead to transmission issues over time. Remember that when you’re driving down winding roads, and opt for engine braking when possible.
