It does hold a lot of fluid so I'd suggest buying two cans of PS fluid. You won't use all of both but you'll get a ways into the second can.
Any more experience on the correct fluid level? When we installed it, we filled up to just above the grate inside. Steering was very heavy at idle like no power steering. Felt like a dead pump. (Recently replaced already) now Iíve filled up higher and it still makes a whine and steering is still a bit heavier than normal. Going to keep adding a bit to see if it needs a lot of fluid.

Thanks!

I confirmed with Bimmerworld's online support team that the correct fluid level is just a little bit above the grates of the reservoir. Lowered my fluid level back down to that and I'll try reverting my power pulleys (underdrives PS) back to stock.

That's exactly what I did. I was going to get the BW/Moroso one but the reservoir was $6 on Amazon and I already had the tees and hoses. It works great. I still rock the basketball armband with zip tie so I never forget where I came from. #stayhumble

Here's the BW link since no one posted it yet: https://www.bimmerworld.com/BimmerWo...servoir_2.html

1M PS reservoir at Amazon for $38. It's $2 cheaper at FCP but no free shipping: https://www.amazon.com/BMW-Genuine-O.../dp/B06Y3Z6CWC
and $31 at Tischer BMW- forum sponsor: https://www.getbmwparts.com/oem-part...nk-32416767161

After power steering pump failure on the track, I'm using an AGA Tools PS reservoir with small reservoir(like GT4?) that is connected to the vent hole by a hose during several years. Perhaps this product has never been mentioned in this forum, because our vehicles are not on the application list. But, BMW uses the same shit in almost every models, this product is perfectly compatible with our car.
Anyway, this has a real filter, not like OEM mash filter that doesn't work well. So it will help the durability of the pump, IMO.
Small reservoir is a bike brake fluid tank, and I fill this with a little cottons.
There has been no problem at all for my track only E92 M3 during 4~5 years. I'm very satisfied with the clean engine room and the perfect performance.

Nice option, thanks for sharing! I especially like that it has a filter.

So if we were to swap out for the 1M part, would the current hoses reach were we to swap them (since the bottom becomes the top and vice-versa)? I saw another thread where someone fashioned adapters, but it doesn't have enough information to make a call.
