I found this info on the online BMW TIS site under Air Conditioning...is this what you're looking for?

If the above isn't it...here's another page (or TIS document)...just scroll down to the bottom of the page to see the table that contains the e38 info:

BMW recommends a total discharge and refill for the ac, but my system pressure reads about 30 psi.
