Brake Fluid?

To those of you that have flushed out the BMW brake fluid and replaced with something with a higher boiling point - what did you use?

ATE, though I ended up back to OE since I had the dealer flush them again. IMO ATE is the best bang for the buck. At least on paper.

Motul RBF600
This what I've run in the past and will be flushing mine out to shortly.

From least to most expensive, ATE, Motul 600, and Castrol SRF.

Is one bottle enough for a complete flush?

No, 2 are required if you're changing from stock to something else. Otherwise you'll just have new in the reservoir and old in the lines and calipers - right where you don't want it.

After that, just run 1 bottle through the system every 6 months or after every big track weekend.

BTW I went with RBF600 - works like a champ

Anyone have a DIY/tutorial or some tools that would make this easier?
