    Question Brake Fluid

    I know a good chunk of the regular posters are off to Germany, but just wondered if anyone knew (or could find out) how much brake fluid is needed to completely change it after draining?

    TIA

    DOT4 is cheaper... And IIRC the VXRs are supplied with it from the factory, so that's what I'd go for!
