Brake fluid change

Curious about timing for brake fluid change. While car was under warranty, they did it after three years. Does it switch to two year intervals after that first time? I just looked under the hood and cannot even find the brake fluid reservoir. Weird.

I've only ever seen 2 year interval recommendations.

Until the last two or three years BMW has recommended a two year interval. A couple or three years ago they switched to a three year recommendation.
