E39 What brake fluid?

Recommended Posts

I've read we need DOT4 Low Viscosity, but can't find any such examples in Repco, or Supercheap. Fuchs seems to make something that fits that specification though. Penrite has a DOT 4 ESP, but I can't found that for sale in NZ.

Castrol's website suggests I can use this: Castrol Brake Fluid DOT 4

Or should I go buy some from the dealership? 

EDIT: The MSDS for Castrol Response Brake Fluid Super DOT 4 says it is lower viscosity for ABS applications...

The only brake fluid ive ever used in dozens of BMW's have predominately that Castrol Super DOT 4 or Motul RBF600 on the track. Get the Castrol.

Agree, I use the same.

Castrol response/react dot 4 for daily drivers - its a good deal for the temperatures it can handle.
