Thanks, I did think it would be worth doing. Any recommendations as to what fluid to go with?

Whoa any garage / mechanic ? - needs to be a gtr specialist or your car will be worth peanuts when you sell it

Minor service - Non Specialist?

Lol Terry.

Use NASA techs if you can obviously.

Motul RBF fluid is good, Castrol SRF is the best but stupidly expensive.

Castrol SRF has a an extremely short use life as well IIRC it is much more hydroscopic than "regular" brake fluid and needs changing to suit.

if you are doing lots of track days then this is probably fine.

Its the most temp resistant but moisture sensitive fluid there is. It'll need swapping yearly if not before if heavily used.

Personally I've been through the SRF phase and now just use Motul RBF as my family needs to eat....

SRF is only £45 at the moment, a ltr should do it if your clever, also stainless hoses make a large difference, I can get them for about £80.

Thanks guys, think some better brake fluid/hoses will be my next upgrade.

Finally got around to getting the pics on the PC, the flames were flowing once the car warmed up Unfortunately the photographer didn't manage to catch any high res shots of them though!
