Need Brake Fluid Recommendations!

Hey everyone,

I am planning to take my car in for a brake fluid flush within the next week or two. While I'm at it, I would like to know if I should stick with OEM brake fluid or upgrade to a different aftermarket fluid?

I was looking at the options on ECS tunings website:

http://www.ecstuning.com/BMW-E92-335...Braking/Fluid/

Notes:
-My car is a street car 95% of the time
-I occasionally do late night Mexico runs and back-road spirited driving
-My brakes are currently 100% OEM; however, I will be throwing on Hawk street pads during the brake fluid flush.

Please let me know your thoughts, thanks.

Stick with oem, your late night runs will still (should) not lead to fade. Driving fast and repeated hard stops is totally different. If you wanted something more 'track worthy', I'd look at Motul 600. Stick to DOT 4 though...
