Brake fluid question

Total noob question here, Im upgrading my brake pads and fluid this weekend. Is one bottle of Motul 1/2L Brake Fluid RBF 600 enough or do I need more?

You might need a little more if you're planning on flushing your system. I'm planning on doing mine as well and I'm estimating using 1.5 bottles.

With Motul people always use 2 bottles.

You can do 1 bottle if you're uber careful. Have 2 bottle available prior to changing brake fluid for a very complete flush.

Ok thanks, yeah it will be a complete flush. Also upgrading to steel lines and slotted rotors. Now lets see who has to back up their braking points!

You brake to slow down; if your brakes fail and you drive through a plate-glass window, you will break it.

2 bottles. Run it all through cuz once that second bottle is open it's useless unless it's in the brake system. I've never been able to do one bottle.

Thanks for the correction. Excitement does nothing for grammar, lol.
