Upgrading Calipers and rotors question

After reading a post here about upgrading the sedan with coupe brembo calipers I've decided to do mine. Ok so I brought the calipers, rotors and brake hose's for a coupe, my question is can I install the front one day then the rear say a week later? Or would I need to bleed all 4 calipers even if I only did the front? I only have 2 jack stands and thought I would install the front first

Thanks for any advise

I'm not saying this is good advice *wink, but I did my Brembo fronts first (and bled the fronts only), and I wasn't able to do my rears until 2 years later (life and its hiccups). By then I bled all 4 corners. Again, not saying that's best practice, but that's what I did and my Brembos are still going strong after 3+ years.

Question , the brembo calipers from the coupe will fit my 2012 3.8 sedan with 18 inch wheels ?
if youre talking OEM 18 inch wheels yeah you will be fine th Big 4 pot MANDO brakes that come OEM are actually thicker than the brembos. if youre talking after maket there is no way of knowing with out shwwel specs liek offset and width
