[A4] Brake Fluid Recommendations?

Hmmmm...I think it's a bad sign if your losing fluid.  The reservoir on my
98 A4 was cracked a couple of years ago and I had to replace it.
Apparently, it's not protected from the Sun under the hood and the UV rays
break down the plastic over the years.  It's no big deal really, just try
not to get fluid on the paint.  :)
