Haynes pretty good for procedure. Do check the state of what comes out as it tells you what state the internals of colling system is in

Don't remember the size but fairly accessible. Instead of trying to get at the dregs in the radiator which will not drain out the block drain plug, I refilled with water and ran the motor. Drained and refilled with water a couple of times until it drained clear. Refilled with BMW purple premixed coolant. Remember to fill to the reservoir minimum line, bleed until bubbles are gone and you're set. Any more and speedy will piss it all away. Mine runs 6-8 bars on the temp gauge regardless of ambient temperature, age of coolant, anything really.
