Upgrading to Stoptech brakes and SS brake lines.

Looking into ordering the brake kit for my 335, which brake fluid should I go with for daily driving?

Torque RT700 works well for me on and off track, fwiw.

There is no need to get expensive fluid if it is just a DD. get the ATE fluid since they are reasonably priced.

From my own experience, as long as you have decently fresh fluid in the caliper, you will melt the rubber dust boots before you actually start boiling the fluid in our stock caliper.
