1999 BMW 328is Drivetrain Service

Your 328is’s drivetrain has a very important job. It transmits power from the engine to the wheels. It spans the full length of your BMW, from back to front. It’s a very intricate system of moving parts and is comprised of everything after the engine transmission: driveshafts, axles, joints, differentials, and wheels. Care for your 1999 BMW 328is to maintain its performance power. You can help prevent repairs by checking and changing differential fluids, and lubricating bearings and gears according to BMW's recommendations.
