Pretty good, I personally have never seen any issue with power steering fluid, Our shop never flushes it, unless a repair is being done to the rack or pump.

Yeah, like I mentioned, it may or may not help, but hey, why not? It's not expensive, and fresh fluid is always good.

Glad you approve Seth, I gave you a little shoutout, haha.

For you 15,000 mile oil change believers, here is what you have to look forward to. Actual pictures of an E39 540i who followed BMW's oil change schedule. This is at 100,000 miles.
