I am going to take the 325 in for its first service, it has a little over 13,000 miles on it. What specific questions should i ask them about what to check or change? Thanks

Don't ask them to check or change anything.
If you do they may look at you as an easy target.
Remember BMW stealerships are notorius for add work projects.
They will always tell you...BMW's require more service than regular cars.
Good luck and may your first visit be as painless as possible!

When you come in for an oil service, there is an oil service check sheet we fill out as we go...the only thing that I usually try to up sell is an air filter (since the air filter is not covered under warranty unless it is so clogged it is causing engine run problems) but at 13k there shouldn't be anything of concern (unless youv'e abused the car).
