dot 3 is crap and dot 4 is better but u will be better putting dot 5.1 brake fluid in it and the clutch as well mate.
reason being the higher the number the hotter the fluid can go before boiling but depending how you drive you may never notice it but it is worthwhile just in case. :bigthumb:
i had a honda civic vti, and it stated to only put in dot 4
i flushed out the whole system and filled with dot 5.1 and had loads and loads of problems, and even went through 7 liters of fluid making sure there were no air leaks and still the brakes were pants, so flushed it all out and refilled with dot 4, stright away no problems and all was fine, strange!!!
