Hey guys so I'm going to flush brake, transmission and differential fluids. Any special recommendations versus buying oem?

Thanks!

Make sure you get brake fluid instead of break fluid.

do you want your brakes to break or brake?

If your hard on your car change to Synthetic brake fluid. DO NOT use SILICONE Dot 5 brake fluid. Use the propper bleeding sequence when flushing the brake system. I would recommend OEM transmission fluid. For the rear diff service use the appropriate weight Synthetic gear oil in either Amsoil or Royal Purple. Don't forget the friction modifier additive if needed.

All brake fluids are technically synthetic. DOT3, DOT4. and DOT 5.1 are glycol-based and acceptable but DOT 5 is silicone-based and not compatible with the Q50 braking system.

I have used ATE Blue in my G8 GT. Good stuff.
