I would recommend it as well.
As long as you replace it every 2-3 years the car will last longer and braking MORE efficient!

I'm running Brembo DOT 4 but a mechanic told me there's not that much difference as long as it's DOT 4...

was a figure of speak
but definately the braking system (brake servo unit, master cylinder) will last longer.
Always an efficient braking.
