lol. Just asked. Brake fluid is like oil in a lot of ways. most of the top brands are decent...and everyone has the flavour they like.+ doesnt hurt to carry a variety of products.

ate superblue is great product with longer life. Its cheaper and resists moisture better.

I wasnt looking to make this a x vs y...just asked if you can get it in. Both are good products.
The only reason ate is not dot is because of the colour...

funny, the brake fluid reservoir on my M3 says "ATE"

I'm confused, prestone DOT 4 from crappy tire has an advertised boiling point of 478F. Are they not telling me something ?

Rich
Was curious about the rain thing. Doesn't make sense that the boiling point would change just because it is raining outside. Found this on wikipedia http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/DOT_4

wet boiling point defined as 3.7% water by volume

What I read here is that when the brake fluid has absorbed water then this is the boiling point. Is that how others read it ?

LoL wet boiling point has nothing to do with rain. Water shouldn't be in your brake fluid or you got bigger problems. Wet boiling point should never matter unless you plan to never change your brake fluid.

WET VS. DRY BOILING POINT
The term boiling point when used regarding brake fluid means the temperatures that brake fluid will begin to boil.

WET BOILING POINT
The minimum temperatures that brake fluids will begin to boil when the brake system contains 3% water by volume of the system.

DRY BOILING POINT
The temperatures that brake fluid will boil with no water present in the system.

Interestingly enough Motul 600 has a higher wet boiling point than Motul 660. So for track junkies who are willing to flush every track day 660 is better since it has a higher dry boiling point, but for people less willing to flush 600 would be a better bet.

660 is also over $50 a bottle, very pricey, for that litle higher number.

If you want a bottle or two of 600 I'll be heading to London on Saturday if you want to meet up.

Yes it does actually. Motul themselves say it. The reason being, when driving in the rain, there is much more moisture in the air that will enter the system since a brake fluid reservoir is vented.

sorta .... Wet boiling point is defined as the boiling point at a specific amount of water in the brake fluid. So sorta... Once your brake fluid has absorbed that much water which may come from driving in the rain (in fact you don't have to drive. Just being in a humid environment ) then the wet boiling point comes into play
