    Forgot to say: be careful as even if the thread is metric, the bleeder must be locked with an imperial (5/16) wrench, not a metric one!

    The SB7100s are listed here : https://www.pmbperformance.com/catalog/item/8778691/6255311.htm a bit cheaper than what I paid for and they also sell ATF Typ 200 fluid (that's the good old racing blue, except for the color). The $6 bag is nice to have. Overseas shipping is more expensive then speedbleeder.com though.

    Stahlbus bleeders are much more sophisticated but 4 times more expensive. If you look for the BMW equivalent caliper reference (https://www.ferrarichat.com/forum/threads/rebuild-rear-brake-calipers.449537/#post-143402109), you can find the proper Stahlbus bleeder screw in their catalog.

    thank you all for the wonderful responses.. I'm not at my car presently, how many bleeders does each caliper have? Thank you all again. Jq.

    3 per caliper: 2 on the outer side (facing the rim), one inside ( facing the frame).
