I just installed front Brembo's and I am having a bleeding issue. I seem not to have brakes on the first push of the pedal, but it catches on teh second and third is the best. What do you guys think...bleeding issue maybe?!

Yes, I would rebelled them if it were me. Start with the outside bleeder then the inside bleeder. Also make sure the brakes are installed with the bleeders facing up (I have seen people install them upside down) if you are going to rebelled the whole system, start at the pass rear, go to the driver rear, then pass front and finish at the driver front

Yes, re bleed. Are the banjo bolts the same on Brembos? If so check the copper washers(if they have them) for seal leaks.

I would follow all of Likwid's advise, but do it in the orders called out by the factory service manual.

Brembo bleeders inside than outside.

Car bled in an atypical order due to its conversion from a Right-hand drive car with the ABS pump still on passenger side... Bleed the longest line first.

Driver Rear, Passenger Rear, Driver Front, Passenger Front.

The first pedal press after messing with brake calipers and pads will always feel like no brakes as the cylinders take up the slack. The second and third presses should feel about the same.
