so the question is --- should i be topping up the steering fluid? if i do top it off, i feel like the excess would just leak out again like what it did before so is there even a point to topping it off?
Be careful, there is no sensor in the 3-series for PS fluid level. Mine was bone dry last year and trashed the PS pump. Special fluid needed (not ATF).
