From my experience, the only requirement is that the fluid is at least DOT 4 rated. There isn't any proprietary brake fluid that I've ever come across.

What would cause loud idling sound , jerking motion and unresponsive brakes to a 2001 audi tt (manual transmission) after adding brake fluid?

loud idling may be higher rpm's and unresponsive brakes point to a vacuum leak in the power booster hose that will run very clos to the reservoir.

I have an Audi 2.6 E Cabriolet. The dash shows a flashing red light for the brakes, which according to the manual means low fluid level. Level is ok and the float switch also checks out ok. Solutions...

I had the same problem but weirdly enough I topped up my Hydrolic fluid and it suddenly stop flashing Perhaps it is a short circuit on my Audi 2.6 E Cabriolet or it actually picks up both brake fluid and Hydrolic fluid with the same light

1991 audi 100 brakes hang up

I believe that it is probably sticky brake calipers. This is a much more common problem and is more likely. You could test this by jacking up your front end and supporting the vehicle safely. Then apply the brakes, then let off of them and try to spin your wheels manually.
Calipers should only cost about $40.00 each or so.
Sometimes they especially like to stick when the pads are worn and/or the rotors are out of spec.

Good luck. Let me know if this solves your problem.

I have a Audi 2005 Audi A4 Diesel and this sign (O) is showing for the last 3 days what does it mean.

You might need your brakes checked. Check your brake fluid level first and make sure it's on full mark and if it is not, don't add too much but drive carefully to a workshop to have your brakes checked. Cheers
