Looking to replace my brake fluid with something better. The stock one doesn't hold up too well with spirited driving :D

Which fluid do you guys recommend for 90% city driving and 10% mountain trashing. No track use. Looking for something that holds up better at high temps, but is stil suitable for everyday use. It would be great if it can go 20-30k km between changes.
I'm running stock discs and Brembo pads (might change to ceramic pads soon).

I'll be getting braided lines along with the new fluid.

I recently switched to HEL Performance braided brake lines and went with Motul RBF 600. Very glad with the choice and supposedly best for street use. We also bleed the clutch and it improved the clutch feel aswell. Definitelly better than the regular DOT4 dealer put in at 30kkm service XD

Decided to update discs and pads all round. Currently with the stock discs and "normal" Brembo pads. The setup is great for normal driving with the occasional mountain drive, but doesn't hold up well enough if you do track/track-style driving. Already changed brake lines with braided ones and switched the stock Shell brake fluid to Motul RBF660.

Did a lot of searching for replacements. The options for the N are quite limited, at least here in Europe.
In the end I was able to find front discs from EBC (both dimple drilled and slotted). Got the last ones in stock in Europe. Unfortunately, no rear discs in stock so I had to get normal Brembo discs.
For pads I went with EBC yellow stuff all round. From what I've read, they are the most suitable for my style of driving.

All should arrive in 2-3 weeks from Poland. I'll report how it holds up as soon as I've tested them out, since I think it's great value as a package. All comes in at under 700 Euro with delivery (2x EBC GD Sport rotors, 2x Brembo rear rotors, 4x EBC Yellow Stuff pads).
