  • Genuine BMW brake fluid - Reasonably priced and actually quite a good product.
  • Pentosin DOT 4 LV - My personal favorite for many years now.
  • ATE SL.6 - Also meets the low-viscosity requirement.
Any of those will do you fine. Note that for a complete change/flush you need to run a bit more than one liter through the system. Typically 1.5 liter is plenty.

The Pentosin product you listed is not a low-viscosity fluid and thus not recommended.

Both will cut it for regular driving.
Low viscosity fluid is better fit for modern vehicles that have bunch of “nanny” electronic devices that utilize brakes to keep you on the road.
So SL6 would be better. You can also find Pentosin LV.
That being said I use ATE TYP200 which is not LV fluid.
