Caliper replacement complete

Finally got my brake job completed tonight. The caliper replacement came today from bmwpartsonly.com. Unfortunately they sent the wrong bracket for the caliper so I had to use the old one which was no big deal. I wasn't aware BMW changed the brackets in 2002? The one they sent was smaller so the holes didn't line up but the caliper was exactly the same...weird. Surprisingly I didn't lose much fluid but it's a pain undoing the brake hose from the old caliper. You can't use a wrench because the pipe is fixed to the nut so you have to twist the whole caliper and then do the same for getting the new one on. Fortunately I had read about that from another member so I was ready. I only had to bleed the wheel I was working on...so far. The brakes feel great but I'll probably bleed them all when the weather gets better just to be safe. If anyone needs any tyips, feel free to pm me. Thanks to the articles...I'd be lost without you guys.
