Vacuum bleeding works fine on Z4Ms. Been there, done that. No problem. I have a pressure bleeder too and I think I like it better, for the quiet (no compressor needed), but I still use the vacuum...

This is not correct for any car I'm aware of. I suspect it is illegal in some countries (like the US). Do you have evidence BMW does this?

To make sure this never happens again, coat the contact surfaces of the brake rotor hat with a very light coat of anti-seize paste.
