Pentosin is an OEM supplier to BMW for many fluids and chemicals. This Pentosin brake fluid is the Low viscosity formula as used in most 2004+ BMW models (see below for specific model information). Low viscosity fluid is required for the latest ABS and DSC systems. Low viscosity fluid works better in the tiny channels in the DSC system. Previous Normal viscosity fluid does not flow as easily which results in a delayed response from the ABS/DSC system and a spongy or mushy brake pedal during a panic ABS stop. This is especially worse in colder climates where the fluid is slow to reach operating temperature. Since this is a safety concern, it's vital that you have the correct fluid in your car.Normal or Low Viscosity?
For the track it's always Normal Viscosity brake fluid. This is because Low Viscosity fluids will be too thin once exposed to typical track temperatures. For regular road and street use, however, you should use whichever fluid came from the factory. For the street if your BMW has "DSC" (Dynamic Stability Control) you should use Low Viscosity (LV) fluid. You have DSC if you have the DSC button on your dash (note: ASC is different and uses Normal Viscosity fluid). If your car does not have DSC use Normal Viscosity fluid.
