A pressure bleeder is preferred with abs cars, but you can do the stomp and
squirt method.....  The theory audi likes is the furthest from the MC first,
so that would be RR>LR>RF>LF....  Since the q's use a single line to the
rear, it also makes sense....  I have also (b4 bleeder purchase) let car
gravity bleed, but doesn't work well and takes forever in the back....

Your BMW dealer sells some Super DOT 4 ATE brake fluid that is pretty cheap,
and prolly the best wallet to performance ratio....  If not Castrol LMA is
prolly fine second choice....
