My Brake fluid on my 1997 318i is very dirty, was wondering if this would be a good buy and then I could use it on my 330i as well.
Anyone here get there Brake fluid flushed at the stealer (BMW dealership), if so how much did they charge?
Looks like a good buy, any thoughts?

I'd do that.. and save twenty or so.... it would probably be more fun.. either that.. or just buy it... they help a lot.. and make life easy.

My local dealer in Colorado want's $99 to do a fluid change on my 328ci.
I have thought about the pressure bleeder and would probibly make one when I decide to change the fluid. Just be sure that it does not run dry and that the pressure is in the specified range. If you do get air in the system you will have to have the ABS valves cycled (trip to dealer) to remove the air.

Well I changed my brake fluid on my 97 318i on the weekend.
So easy with the Motive Pressure Bleeder.
I ended up buying it at trackhaus.com.
I will now be changing the fluid on my 2001 330i this weekend.
You have to have the proper tools and it is a breeze.
A jack, breaker bar, torque wrench, a 7mm wrench, turkey baster, and a couple litres of BMW brake fluid (just in case).
My fluid was pretty dirty.
They say you should change your brake fluid every two years.
Can definitely feel a difference with the brakes.
I think it was the original fluid.

asd123 is on a distinguished road
1. Add brake fluid to the Motive Power Brake Bleeder tank.

2. Firmly connect the supplied adapter to brake master cylinder and pump the Motive Power Brake Bleeder to pressurize.

3. Starting with the furthest away brake bleeder valve (typically on the rear of the vehicle), open brake bleeder valve and purge the air and old brake fluid from your brake system.
