In Reply to: Bentley's says do NOT bleed brakes by yourself? posted by John Feng on October 26, 2000 at 17:59:02:

They say you should use the BMW machine that activates the ABS and lets all the fluid out of the little valves and everything... I did a bleed myself and it stops on a DIME. Don't worry about it. You just leave a little bit of the old fluid in. If it were dirty enough to corrupt all the new stuff you're putting in, your calipers would be shot by now. It's not signifigant.
