I've read that you need to cycle the ABS to get all the old fluid out of the system. Have you ever heard of this??? How do you do it?
Thanks, Chris

As far as I am aware pressure bleeders don't work great on our cars with the ABS valves. The guys at the workshop I use always do M3's the good old fashioned way i.e. two people etc etc.


Am I missing something here? I hooked up my pressure bleeder, 20psi, and nothing comes out of 3 brakes. Left front bled OK. Is there something I need to do with the ABS?
The car hasn't been driven for a few weeks but when I took
it out for a drive, the usual awesome E30 M3 braking, just
want to flush the fluid. Any ideas?
