Power Steering Fluid

Just wanted to check, am I right in thinking that the Z3 uses ATF in the Power Steering pump, rather than standard Power Syeering Fluid?

If so are there any particular recommendations on which brand etc is best to use?

so the block plug is accessed from below then, theres no way it can be seen from above?

The chip in the key de activates the imobiliser (hence why you cant start the car with a screwdriver) but as far as I know the actual alarm...

On what model Z3? I'm guessing if you have fogs, then you have a 1.9, therefore it won't have sidelights on the bumper and one of the connectors is probably for these. Another one may well be for the outside temperature probe. And the third for headlight washers. Anyone think of anything else? Chee...
