    What tool are you using, Nestea bottle with silicone hose? 3 bottles to be safe (the size sold at dealers).

    The fluid flush interval is every 4 years according to the maintenance booklet.

    It really depends on how easy the brakes bleed .

    Some people manage to go through quite a lot

    I just buy brake fluid in the gallon containers
