    Hi beemer family,
    I have a quick question. hoping you guys can answer to clear up my confusion.
    I own the E87 120d 2006 reg Manual.
    I would like to have it serviced but im slightly confised when it comes to the power steering fluid. Not sure what my car requires and how much of it is required. I have read in different places that it requires Power steering fluid and other places ATF. it does say under the bonnet in the resevoir ATF only. so if anybody could clear up my confusion on which is required. how much of it and any recommended products.

    Thanks Alot

    no its used in manual gearboxes and power steering systems too
    any of the well known brands will do power steering is not as sensitive to brands unlike a auto gearbox
