Be careful! That's close to how I ended up in my M235 back in 2015. Had a low price oil change coupon for my E92, was waiting in the dealership, wandered onto the show floor, and ended up test...

To specifically answer the first part of your question, you don't "top up" these systems, unless you want to damage your compressor via liquid slugging. You vacuum them out and then add the correct...
