I was thinking the same thing did i make a misstake? , everything happens realy fast when you are going 200+ and have sharp right turn in front of you.
But they showed me at the BMW shop afterwords how the brake fluid flushed out of a hole in the left brake caliper .
Actually felt good to know that it wasn´t my fault , just bad luck.
I have a crappy iphone movie of the fluid flushing out when pressing the brake pedal, i might post it later
