Continental Aftermarket GMBH is recalling some ATE Super Blue Racing DOT 4 brake
So if your brake fluid is from the above company and seems to be feeling a bit blue? It's not depressed... It needs returned to the retailer for this
Wow what an unexpected place to read this, thank you! I am upgrading my rear brakes with new performance rotors and aluminum calipers over the mk3
steel, with stainless braided lines, and was going to use this brand. They are popular at least on the VW performance web sites and forums.
How ironic that I am doing these upgrades to prevent any brake failure (as the brakes are hands down one of the most important parts of a car,
especially when racing.) and the fluid I almost bought could have made all those hundreds of dollars in upgraded parts not work. Thank you again!
Definitely brakes and suspension are the most important parts of a car,for racing and for general driving too,Presumably you've already upgraded your
front brakes - vented,drilled and grooved discs,heat resistant anti-fade pads,aluminium callipers,steel braided hoses etc before doing the rears
As for the OP,so there's nothing wrong with the fluid itself apart from being the wrong colour ???
