Hi all. New to the forum, but I've had my 325i since halloween. Maybe someone could give me a little advice. I was looking through ebay and saw this package. Has anyone used these on their ride? Is this a good deal do you think? I will be doing mostly back highway driving, i.e. 45-55 mph with turns, etc. on my way to and from work. I like to jump on it and then I have to slow down fast sometimes. My drive is about twenty five minutes one way. Thanks

yea definately get it in a heart beat... i have it on my car, they have fast shipping. i would have to say one of the best packages made for our cars. if you still feel uncomfortable, i bought another package from them for my other car (1994 audi 90) and will probably buy one for my 1991 200 and my friend will probably get one for his 1994 100. so i think they are great people and if you call them they will be happy to talk to you. worth every penny

I think I'm going to go with this kit:
http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/ws/eBayISAP...me=STRK:MEWA:IT
It has everything the other kit had, but it also has steel lines, which I wanted to do anyways, for only 50 bucks more.

My understanding of the advantage of steel brake lines is this:
Hydraulic systems work on pressure transfer. You push on the brake pedal, that signal is amplified, and transferred back to your actual brakes through the fluid in your brake lines. Normal stock lines are made with rubber or reinforced rubber. Over time, these can become brittle and cracked. They lose some of their stiffness, causing your brakes to feel soft, and eventually lose some response. Steel lines keep everything solid, and improve feel and response.
I think!
