F30/F34 coolant change - litres?

Hi all,

Done the coolant change - BMW like to make it a PITA process with no drain plug!

Couple of questions:

1. I followed the Bentley and BMW guides and removed hoses to the pump and lower rad but only 4.5litres came out not the expected 7litres stated as refill, any reasons?

2. The coolant top up white ball reservoir has a inverted pyramid with "Max" written on the top, just wanted to confirm is the bottom point the Max or the top of the inverted pyramind the "Max". I think its the bottom but just checking!

If anyone needs tips just shout - important be patient with rad hose removal, I didnt twist it as its plastic but slowly pried it with larger and larger screwdrivers...



Thanks
Smithie
