The whole system takes less than a quart (liter). Get FeBi 02615 or Mercedes fluid A0009899103 - they are the exact same as BMW fluid outside of the dye, and they are a bunch cheaper.

You can also get Pentosin CHF 11S. I don't care for it on account of its smell and it dissolving the vinyl on your tonneau cover a bit faster in case one of the bow tension bar cylinders is leaking.

Frank, why are you asking? Are you having a leak somewhere?
