It’s as easy as following the recommended maintenance schedule that’s been written specifically for your 1987 BMW 325is!

BMW knows your vehicle inside and out (they made it, after all!), so they’ve designed this schedule with your car’s unique needs in mind. Scheduled maintenance services can vary depending on driving conditions, climate, and other factors; however, there’s a good chance that your vehicle’s recommended maintenance services will include tire rotations, vital fluid checks/exchanges, filter changes, brake pad replacement, and oil changes. Keeping up with routine service appointments is a great way to keep your 325is running for longer, keep you safer on the road, and help you avoid expensive repairs caused by 1987 BMW 325is problems later.

Bring your 1987 BMW 325is to Firestone Complete Auto Care for factory-recommended maintenance services and an expert technician will begin by performing a Courtesy Check. A Courtesy Check helps "set the stage" for your service and catch any small problems before they turn into big repairs. Every Courtesy Check will include a visual inspection of your 325is. We’ll check your head and tail lights, fluid levels, filters, tires (and their alignment!), and windshield wiper blades. We’ll also perform a free battery check to determine your battery’s charge level.

Think you could be due for a new battery in your 1987 BMW 325is? Batteries generally need to be replaced every three to five years.

Otherwise, you may find yourself (and your trusty 325is) stuck in the middle of nowhere. Your BMW 325is won't be going anywhere without a strong battery.
