New to me 128i fluid change info needed

2010 128 6SP manual...102k

My power steering is leaking all over...So I ordered a new filter/container and will flush it with the green 11s.

I saw that I needed an air filter and cabin one so I ordered all that on one order.

So it got me thinking...trans and rear diff and coolant...
Could you tell me what the capacity if for each and what is the best type to get?

Now Brake fluid...I plan on tracking my car so I was told to get a higher temp fluid and better brake pads...So what is a good fluid?

Thanks in advance!
Garth

I like using Motul RBF600 for brake fluid on the track (and daily year round too). I haven't experienced any fade, but I do bleed the brakes before each event just to make sure the system is good to go.

As for brake pads, it's somewhat dependent on your track experience. Have you done track days or just starting out?

Here's a thread on changing the diff and trans fluid.

Coolant change info, sounds like for just a drain and fill you'll need one gallon of BMW coolant and one gallon of distilled water, create 50/50 mix and refill.
