    On my other cars every time i did a brake fluid change i bought 2 32oz bottles and used about 1 and a half.

    So if you get 2 32oz bottles you will have plenty.

    The stock brake system has a 500mL capacity. I would get 2 500mL bottles and see how that does. Should be enough (I used one 500mL bottle when just doing a flush).

    Yeah 2 500mL bottles will do...so either 2 of RBF600 or 1 can of ATE will do just fine!

    Well I'm going to be installing SS lines and replacing the fluid with Motul RBF600.

    Thanks for all the input guys.
