Power / Vacuum Bleeders

Looking to purchase a power bleeder so I can bleed my brakes by myself easily. What do you guys recommend?

Cheers!

Russell Speed Bleeders.

I own three (3) pressure bleeders, including a Motive, and frankly they're a lot more trouble than they're worth. You waste a lot of fluid and you pump air into the fluid with the pressure. The speed bleeders work just fine and they don't contaminate the fluid. Having done many, many brake bleeds, I'm happiest with a two-person bleed, then comes the Speed Bleeders, and dead last is the pressure bleeder.

Thanks all for the responses. I was very curious because when I googled, I got a lot of hits about the motive not fitting onto te break resivior, not so much on the E9x, but on other BMW platforms. Looks like motive or speed bleeder is the way to go! Thanks again!

The motive is the least of all evils if only one person can do it.
