Another great tidbit of info from this forum. I’m so used to the “low fluid “ warning light, I would never think to refill or check the level without it coming on. In a million years I never would have guessed this Car doesn’t have one. How is that possible ?
Its a double edged sword....on F30 warning light was allways on if you filed tge reservoir with rain-x..it would mess up theoptical sensor and the whole reservoir had to be changed.....you could only use Bmw washer fluid lol.....I giess italians were practical and skipped that problem before it arises...
What kind of washer fluid are you all using? I've been using Peak -20F (I have to drive to Nevada to acquire this contraband, it is not available in California?!), which at least doesn't freeze but is poor at washing bugs off the windshield.
2 Gallons ~= 16 pounds of washer fluid. That seems excessive both in terms of weight on the vehicle and stress on the washer fluid tank mounts.
Maybe the fluid warning light is only displayed on a subset of the menus?
The Owners Manual says it has a low fluid warning light. I have not seen it because monthly, when I check tire pressures, I check fluid levels and top up. It also says the headlight washers, if equipped, will stop working before the windshield washers.
