The Power steering spill problem

This was a problem with during my E46 days. During heavy cornering at track days, the power steering ventilation port in the cap would spill fluid everywhere. On the M54 in my old E46, this would just mean all over the stock intake cover. Easy peasy. In our cars, this meant the whole passenger side was covered in fluid. What a mess to clean up! I still haven't fully cleaned up everything yet..

How do we prevent spilling?
  1. Bimmerworld PS Reservoir $164.99 (out of stock)
  2. 3D Design PS Attachment $395!!!!
  3. Kaiv's awesome cheap method with BMW Motorcycle Brake cylinder $40

Being the 'thrifty' person I am, I went with the cheap kaiv method. Thank you for sharing this awesome workaround!

Parts List
  • BMW F650GS Rear Brake master cylinder | Part # 34 21 7 706 055
  • 5/32" 90 Degree connector
  • 5/32" Vacuum tube
  • M6 10mm bolt







The end result is a nice clean setup. Since the PS is designed to vent, I'm thinking about drilling a hole in the cap to allow for that.


Hopefully, this solves the issue!

Good stuff. I should have just gone with this route and a new PS reservoir gasket. Instead I have the 1M reservoir sitting here to be installed ...

I read that this design still leaks just not as much. Thats my reason why I didn't go your route.

Thanks man! Finding a set of GT4s is a little harder nowadays. You could always get EC7s but I figure with your E92, you probably want the BBS wheels.


There were a few variations of the BBS RE GT4 Motorsport wheel.

Two rim sizes from the E92 era.

18x9.5 ET25
18x10 ET40

M235IR Size
18x10 ET24

The biggest difference is the center bore, the original versions had 77.5mm where the later ones became 72.6mm.

The early choices doesn't seem to fit the BBS center caps either. I luckily have a set with 72.6mm and fit the center caps.

The M235IR ones might be the only ones left in production and they come in black but way better offsets.

So true, I'd definitely prefer BBS over EC7 but since the e91 is the daily, I "shouldn't" care too much. I was just looking at those wheels for the M235i. Maybe, just maybe I can find a used set on here some day.

Love your build. I want to get some MCS 2WNR's like you did but I have a hard time giving up my Bilstein Damptronic Coilovers though.

you do know if you give up the Damptronics, you could sell them for an arm and a leg since they don't exist anymore.. Might be able to fund your 2WNR.

Thanks alot man! I love your build even more! I was just saying to my brother a few weeks ago, that your build is on the same lines of what I would want to do if I wanted a GTS clone with more street-ability. I actually sold my old ZHP to a fella (now a good friend) in Gainesville, GA. Is that close to you?
