    Brake Fluids

    It is almost time for a brake fluid flush only. What do you guys use as recommended brake fluid? Regular driver. No racing. I will be using a pneumatic brake bleeder.

    Thanks.

    I second ATE SL.6 from FCP for daily driving.

    Alternative is just BMW's own stuff or Pentosin DOT4 Low Viscosity if you want to shell out more money for no discernible reason.
