BTW: You should put on a separate clutch reservoir while you're at it.

+1. I dont have a manual, but a lot of dudes on this forum swear by needing a separate reservoir.

If you want the best - Castol SRF. But it's also like $70 a liter.

Correct.....and that gave me a little for the clutch reservoir as well. Although I go through enough fluid for the clutch reservoir that I normally just use Prestone DOT4 that I get from local car store or walmart.

Do a search for clutch reservoir on here and you'll find plenty of info.

I like ATE Super Blue or Type200 myself. It's cheap...about $15 a liter and a lot of track guys use them. Super blue and Type200 is the same thing...just different color. You can alternate them when you do the flush so you know when it's done.

It was good speaking with you! I do offer additional discounts on certain items, the clutch reservoir just doesn't have much room to play with. But if you throw in a few other items, I can probably work something out fro ya! Give me a call!

SRF is the best, period.

When stopping is something that you want to do as well as you can, SRF is the way you want to go.

There are a number of second bests out there, but there is only one #1
