Because our cars came with MC bleeders, so the bleeding sequence is different than without bleeders. I've done it both ways and have bleeders on my MC, the main objective as we all know if getting the air out of the system, this can be achieved either way of the bleeding sequence. I use a pneumatic bleeder, hooked up to my compressor and it'll get all air bubbles out regardless on which wheel I start at.
Yeah, I do something like that too. I attach clear tubes to each bleeder and put the other ends in empty water bottles. Then keep pumping and refilling while opening each bleeder. I stop when each bottle has several inches collected and the tube is full and I feel like it was sufficient
