Why? How would air enter the system in a typical pad change where you're not opening up the caliper?

Not that it'd ever hurt to bleed the system and pull out any contaminants that might be in the cylinders, but I'm curious as to your claim that one needs to do so every time you change pads. Is there something special about BMW's that's different from all the other marques?


kiwi29: whats your pedal feel like now? Your experiences sounds a LOT like raceyBMW's suggestion. If everything is normal now, that might have been it. If you still have a soft pedal then something's up with the system and it's time to bleed if for no reason but to eliminate that possibility.
