What kind of brake fluid to use on C230

I am buying a 1998 C230 and i will flush the brakes come springtime. Any recomended fluid. I have an 86 Porsche 944 that I use ATE super Blue. Can I use this or should i use something else?

I really like the ATE Super Blue Racing Fluid. Blue or Gold. You've probably heard that they have the two colors so you can tell when a system flush is done.

The best price I've seen is from the people who also carry the Power Bleeder.

I just looked it up and it sounds impressive, high wet and dry boiling points, DOT 4 I don't see why you couldn't use it. I think I will look into purchasing some myself too. That's the last thing I need to buy for my wifes car to completely redo the brakes on her car which is a 00 C230.

I've got all new rotors, ATE pads for the rear, EBC greens for the front, new wear sensors and synthetic brake grease all sitting on my toolbox. Fluid is the last thing I need and I think you just helped me make my decision.

The specs are impressive:

DOT 4 Requirements Valvoline SynPower Ate Super Blue
Dry Boil Point 414 F 502 F 536 F
Wet Boil Point 279 F 343 F 392 F



95 E320
00 C230SE

I'm not sure if they sell ATE super blue here at the parts shop but here's a link to a place that sells it for $8.95 per Liter which is about the best price I can find.

I get mine at the local foreign auto place. I have the Motive bleeder also. I just checked their website and the bleeder I have for the 944 fits the mercedes. Awesome!!! This will be my wifes car but I keep jumping up and down.
