This doesn't sound right - no doubt as you suspected. I can refill my reservoir with a minute or so of pouring. Although the fill rate is relatively slower than most cars with a wider funnel.

Question: Have you been using BMW washer concentrate, or some other product? Some owners report slow fluid flow after mixing BMW with non-BMW washer fluid - there are a number of extensive threads on this.

Never use rain x or any other washer fluid that has similar properties. It will gunk up the sensor and you will have issues. Only use either BMW washer or the cheap blue stuff
