Hi Everyone

is there a right and wrong dot 4.0 fluid to be used on our cars?

I was thinking of buying something from amazon such as:

https://www.amazon.ca/ATE-706202-Ori...ke-Fluid/dp/B0

https://www.amazon.ca/Pentosin-12041...s%2C155&sr=8-5

https://www.amazon.ca/Pentosin-12241...s%2C155&sr=8-9

Lol. I just went trough this myself. The dealer was closed and I had the car on jack stands. The Pentosin Blue is for older cars. If you want Pentosin get Pentosin LV. BMW switched to LV. low viscosity a long time ago. Honestly I don't think it will cause anything major but the ABS is more advanced and does more things now so the Low Viscosity works better. I found it at auto zone in one litter bottle and did my entire flush.

Pentosin LV for the win or get BMW which is probably the same stuff.
