The fastest could be to use the pressure bleeder but the best IMHO would be to do the job with a friend ie one to pump the brakes and top up the reservoir and the other to bleed the calipers one at a time starting from the furthest caliper.
Drain the reservoir completely to remove old fluid and dirt.Top up to full.Monitor fluid level while bleeding.Air in the system is a NO NO.Did my last bleeding with the wife-of crs I was at the calipers.

: Can anyone tell me what the fastest and best way to completely flush the brake system in a 90 535i? My brakes are a little soft and the fluid looks dirty.
