Anyone done a brake bleed with any of the workshops in JB before?
Me Bought 1L Dot 4 from Carousell, think only $10, sent to Ts Motor to do the bleed. Labour that time very reasonable.

Ok great! Got recommended to use a slightly more expensive Motul RBF 660. Thinking since it's a one-off cost for a few years, should be better? I see most standard bottles is 500ml, how come you buy 1L?

Honestly no need Motul one la unless your car is performance one. All brake fluid for standard cars will last years if you don't keep opening the reservoir and exposing it to air. It comes in 1L bottle also, they used the whole bottle for me to bleed, flush and replace the fluid.

Edit: Actually the one I got is not normally cheap, is the Mercedes Benz Dot 4 Plus but got lobang la. Cheap cheap.

Ah..to compare like that, I don't know man.. Based on my research last time, the grades Dot 3, Dot 4, Dot 4+, highest(4+) is backwards compatible except for Dot 5.1 which is silicone based I think. It's a difference in boiling points, 4 and 4+ boil at higher temp. There's also some difference between the brands of how much water the fluid absorbs from air or something which affects its change interval and the viscosity..this was some time ago..memory a bit hazy

The Brembo one all this I've heard is primarily for performance applications such as BMW M Series vehicles or track cars where the braking system is under immense stress.

1. Car Comfort Shop

2. AudioLution

Find their contacts on FB. Ask them for quotes and material used. Prices varies from materials they use.

Some bro here uses AudioLution before.
I used Car comfort Shop before.

Just buy 1.5l fluid can liao.
Then go the shop they remove all tires.
Then loosen hose then keep press brake pedal. Lol

Then pour in new then press pedal until no more juices
Then tighten hose pour new fluid at bonnet area.
