Recommended brake fluid?

What is the recommended brake fluid for 2007 4.8i. I want to do a flush and I did not see anything in the manual. I would imagine 1 liter should be enough. Anyone done their own?

THX.

I'd use DOT 4. Should probably say on the cap of the reservoir. Be careful not to let the reservoir go empty, as air can be trapped in the ABS controller and it then requires a computer to be hooked up to cycle the valves to bleed it.

Thanks JCL,

I was going to use ATE Super Blue Dot 4.
