Yeah the fluid performs better than the stock fluid plus you can get it for a few bucks more than stock fluid. Why not take the chance and upgrade to a better fluid? I love mine with the stainless steel brake lines.

Motul is good stuff! I didn't opt for it though because its sold in half the size as the ATE variant and is more expensive. Plus there gets to be a point when you go with such a fluid you have to flush it out more often. Not saying this is the case with the Motul, but in general.

I read somewhere that racing brake fluids are good for just that racing, higher boiling points etc. But these fluids lack the corrosion and moisture resisting properties of regular good quality fluid. I don't track my car and use ATE gold and flush it every 2 years.
