Brake Fluid (ATE SL.6 vs 200)

It is approaching the time for me to replace pads and rotors for the front. It has been nearly 3 years for my brake fluid flush so I thought I would replace the brake parts and after pushing in the piston, perform the nifty Billman gravity bleed for the brake fluid. (One person operation and you don't touch the brake pedal) Do the entire enchilada at one time.

I was going to try ATE type 200 but have been looking at ATE SL.6 which is promoted for EBS, ABS, VSA and associated brake systems. The boiling point is a little lower than type 200 but the viscosity is half. Bleeds fast and from what I have read it works great in modern Electronic Braking Systems. I have an 09 with the VSA of course. I don't track. (Yet)

What say you? Should I do a thorough flush with the new fluid or just stick with Type 200?
