What type of brake fluid?
Any Problem with using Motul RBF 600 DOT4 ?
I've been using Motul for a decade or so. Just want to be sure there isn't anything unique about MB hydraulics.

Should be fine if you've had good experience. The OE recommended product is ATE Super Blue.

Definitely agree on using ATE. Accept no substitute.
The SuperBlue is indeed blue. I use it along with ATE Typ200 fluid which is the same thing but without the blue dye. Makes for easy yearly changes as all you have to do is watch the color change at each caliper bleeder until it runs out in the same color as what you're flushing with.
The green color is simply the blue dye of the new fluid mixing with the old yellow stuff, hence green. Keep flushing until it comes out blue. At the next yearly brake flush service interval, same procedure just make sure the yellow stuff comes out.
IMO Motul is great stuff, but is more geared for bikes. And it's too expensive for use in these cars. You're better off spending the money on a set of StopTech braided flexible brake lines.
