Courtesy of Thomas Philip:

The following is from a post by Steve D' of the Ultimate Garage about brake fluid boiling points. I've added a few more data points and filled in approx. pricing to try and work out the cost/benefit. I personally use the ATE Super Blue on my E36 325is; I tried to find something that degraded the least for a reasonable price. Had I had brake fade problems, I would have next tried Motul 600. For comparison, I'm an intermediate student and the tracks I've driven
are Summit Point and VIR using PF90 pads. HTH.
