Post Does it matter? M54 power steering

Does anyone know if the power steering fluid has to be BMW? Any and all help is greatly appreciated! Thanks.

It dosent have to be, but you must put the same grade in and on NO account mix two different types/makes.
But if you want to go for another make you will have to drain the system, so I would have thought its cheaper to just top up with BMW fluid.

Thanks for the info. Cheaper isn't always better, but in this case, it works!
