Questions About 1996 BMW 328i’s Transmission

  • Is it bad to ride the brakes in your BMW? Keeping your foot on the brake pedal or lightly but consistently pushing it down can lead to transmission problems. Keep that in mind when driving in hilly terrain and remember to use engine braking when possible.
