Did ATE stop making the blue stuff? I read somewhere the amber ATE stuff is the same and they make the two colors so you can tell when clean fresh fluid has made it to the caliper when bleeding them.
If you go to the Porsche dealer and buy the Porsche brake fluid it's amber.

Drain the fluid reservoir with a suction gun and then remove it and wash it out with water. Brake fluid mixes with water so thats the best thing to use for cleaning the plastic reservoir. Then blow it out dry real good with compressed air before pressing it back into the master cylinder rubber grommets.

It's good to start bleeding at the right rear caliper first for the rear ones and right one for the front ones, or depending on the vehicle the ones that are farthest from the master cylinder first.
