    Do you drive it in snow/ice? Viscosity in cold weather will be more than at high temperatures. I suspect that cold viscosity is most important for ABS in snow/ice (especially if you haven't been...

    I think the ETK has that info wrong. The 2003+ M3s use the same system as the M3 CSL, and the CSL doesn't have a precharge pump listed. Wouldn't be the first time that there's a mistake in there

    I was under the impression that the cars without the precharge pump didn't need DOT4 LV. Let me see if I could find the corresponding info in TIS.

    Of course volume in = volume out. But that doesn't mean the CDV can't slowdown the whole system. And that's exactly what it does. Everything eventually goes where it needs to go, but it takes a...

    Pressure (and velocity) will be greater before the restriction than after. It doesn't limit pressure in the sense that the pressure cannot exceed X...

    For anyone who has doubts about the CDV, try this:

    Remove your CDV and clean it really well
    Blow into both sides

    You'll notice that the return direction has a ton more resistance than the...

    When I did the CDV on my ZHP, I kept the stock line and did not change the fluid. If anything I introduced air into the system (but I doubt I did since I didn't lose a single drop). I did not feel a...
