The HoW has heaps of information regarding brake and clutch fluid change. Go to Hall of Wisdom>Flying Brick>Maintenance>Brake Systems. BMW revised their maintenance schedule and now recommend NOT bleeding the ABS pump unless it has been rebuilt, making the job much easier.
Apart from a speed bleeder, no special tools required. A tip- Secure a tube of clear plastic like battery over flow tube to your speed bleeder, and run it into a bottle, preferably with a hole in the lid to accept the tube, so if it is knocked over, no spill occurs. Works well with two people. Good luck, it aint that hard.
