Rear Caliper Bleeder Leak
I installed speed bleeders last brake fluid change on 03 GT. The rear caliper bleeder leaked (more like seeped) about a drop or two after a couple hundred miles. I continuted to tighten the speed bleeder a few more times until I felt uncomfortable about turning it further. I removed and polished the bleeder seat, no help, the speed bleeder continued to leak.
I misplaced the original bleeder so I bought a new "standard" bleeder from the BMW dealer and installed. This bleeder leaks too in spite of several tightens. Same deal, about a drop after a few hundred miles - the inside of the rubber cap is wet, so I feel confident that the bleeder is the leak.
