Bleeding a late model with ABS

Hello guys, sorry to post what will look like a stupid question that may seem to have been answered. I did a search for this but came up empty.

Please bear with me this one has just a little different twist:

Are there any special trick to bleeding the ABS brake system on a late model W203 C-class ? Several guys are changing to stainless lines and or installing Brembo Brake Kits. A few are having a lot of trouble bleeding.

Personally I may be installing SS lines and don't want to get stuck inthe same boat. I plan on buying the Motive power bleeder to make it easier, (I hope).

Thanks, you all are the best!

it's point and shoot. get the power bleeder as it makes it so much easier. start at the caliper furthest from the master cylinder and work your way to the closest. sometimes you will need to leave the caliper cracked open for a little bit or even re-bleed the system. i usually just repeat the process before putting the wheels back on. mercedes brake fluid is also recommended.
