Is this a dealer only deal?<p>Note: some dealers may be using regular DOT4 in the Rs. It's probably ok for daily/spirited driving. Might get hot if you track though.<p>Thoughts/comments/opinions/etc.?

Re: Having trouble finding DOT4+ brake fluid in stores (S60R1)

Just order some ATE Super Blue or Motul 600 from your favorite online retailer. Apex Performance has a good deal, so does Zeckhausen.

Check with motorcycle shops as well since some carry the Motul

I just did a brake flush not too long ago. Valvoline synthetic DOT4+ works fine.<p>Auto Zone

Boiling point of 518 deg. IIRC.
