Nope.  500ml of DOT4 is not worth a minute of my time.

Don't care.  Audi says 500ml per slave cylinder.  Why they say it is
not my concern.  I've long since given up trying to second-guess Audi
engineers - I've queried apparently anomalous things so often and then
found underlying (and poorly explained) technical reasons that I no
longer waste the intellectual effort.

DOT4 is not that expensive that it's even worth discussing.  You spend
$60 a month on retroactive accident insurance and won't spend 60c a
month on pro-active insurance?
