The best brake fluid for your Mercedes-Benz brake system is printed on the cap of the brake fluid reservoir. Most likely is going to be DOT 4+ Brake Fluid.
If your Mercedes-Benz requires DOT 4+ brake fluid do not use brake fluid from auto parts store that says DOT 3, 4, 5 and 5.1.

Have you used a different brake fluid on your Mercedes-Benz brake system? Did you notice any performance or system degradation?
Wife's 550CLS had a leaking front caliper and drained the reservoir to the point the that the add fluid light can on. I topped it off with Castrol DOT 4 not knowing I needed 4+. Now every caliper leaks. I've got my fingers crossed that a flush will fix it.
