You can't go wrong with Castrol LMA.  It is a DOT 4 fluid that has a good 
heat range and Low Moisture Absorption.  When to change the fluid is probably 
dependent of how you use the car.  As a daily driver you should be good for a 
few years, assuming the entire brake system is in good shape.  As a show car, 
you would probably want silicone brake fluid (DOT 5) and change it annually.  
If it is a race car, you should probably change it before each race.
