Brake fluid replacement on 335 coupe

Hi All,

Happy New Year to everyone.

A few weeks ago, my aircon system ran out of gas. When I took the car into my local dealer to get it checked out (under warranty), they service guy also said that my brake fluid was due to be replaced in March 2010.

Now, my car is a little over a year old (build date was May 08 and I bought it new in Nov 08) - it has just over 19000k's at the moment so by Mar I expect it'll be closer to about 22-23 thou.

My question is, isn't two years too or 23 odd thousand km's a tad too soon to be replacing brake fluid? I thought brake fluid had a much longer life between changes these days but I thought I'd ask you guys for your thoughts.

Thanks,

Phil

That seems very odd, Is this perhaps a 335 feature ? Pretty sure my Idrive has nothing about brake fluid.

I bought mine new in december 08 and mine says brake fluid change in 07/2010 done 15000ks so that's just over 1yr 7months. so that's about right brake fluid boils and goes to sludge i would change it its not a camry its a high performance car with big brakes so look after them.
