    I recently did this work,it wasn't as bad as feared.Put a piece of plastic bag over the master cylinder,lower the fuel tank,nearly empty,onto jacks,the replacement pipe from BMW allows for some tightish bends but I used a tool to do the last bend into the slave cylinder.After reconecting the new pipe into the T piece I was surprised to see fluid coming out of the end!cue some quick work with the bending tool,couple up and,guess what,the brakes feel fine,no need to bleed em!Keefo.
