Is the car the new 1 series or older one. Are you sure the computer is telling you it needs more fluid? Bmw 1 series have a service light for brake fluid change. I'd double check first. I'n the older 1 series the resevouir is hidden under a square piece of trim top left hand corner of the engine bay. Again in the older 1 series the brake fluid is scheduled to be changed every 2 years. The easiest way to find out if it's a service needed take your key to a main dealer, they then read the service info that's stored on the key and will tell you there and then.

Hope ithat helps

Dot 4 brake fluid would be the one. if u type your reg into eurocarparts and then click brake fluid it will come up. Normally a brake fluid change from a dealer is around £50

It usually says on the top as well, even my Punto tells me I need dot 4.

it is better to change fluid every year. if you haven't or can't remember changing fluid then best to go for complete change. i have used ATE super blue which will visually show rather than conventional colourless ones.
