Thanks for the advice, Gary!

Yes, I am running OEM brake fluid, and it sounds like my issue is much more a case of fluid boiling - I didn't notice much loss of "bite" as the pedal got progressively longer.

Will a higher spec brake fluid be noticeable to a dealer? If so, is it likely to affect my warranty or maintenance contract?

Also, any idea what would trigger the brake & DSC warning lights? Is the car detecting excessive pedal travel perhaps?
