Fresh off our production line - we just completed new Stainless Steel Brake Lines and Stainless Steel Clutch lines, and one has to admit, they look stunning. It is a feel-good upgrade for us too because there's a lot of benefits, especially for these E36s that are pushing two and a half decades.

QUICK AND EASY INSTALLATION
Remove the old rubber brake line, install the new Stainless Steel brake lines, then bleed the brakes. Done.
FIGHTING THE EFFECTS OF TIME
If you have an E36 verging on 25 years of wear to the stock rubber lines, think about what they look like now. Forget rocks kicking up into the wheel well for two decades, but imagine how much hydraulic fluid has expanding and retracting with temperature, cracking the lining. Imagine years and years of being stretched by the brakes pumping. Think that your brake lines are going to have the same integrity they did years ago? Now consider the fact they were already less rigid than Stainless Steel lines when they were brand new.
PERFORMANCE IS KEY
When you press your brake or clutch pedal, fluid gets pushed down the tubing of the brake line and into the brakes. Less rigid rubber lining has the downfall of expanding slightly when the volume of liquid pushes up against it. With our Stainless Steel Brake Lines and Stainless Steel Clutch Lines you will feel that the pedal is firmer instantly once the installation takes place.
THEY'RE PRETTY TOO
We covered our stainless steel brake lines and clutch lines with our signature color red plastic lining. Braided stainless steel can be abrasive and wear down surrounding components so we've coated them with a more forgiving material. This ensures surrounding structural integrity as well as looking pretty awesome.
AND YOU KNEW WE HAD TO DO THIS
Safety. We know that within this community, there can be a possibility of being... creative with finances. While this is something we love and and will always represent getting the most bang for your buck (I mean that's what being garagistic is all about), unfortunately safety can be the first place to take a hit when trying to be thrifty. But these steel lines are such an instant value that there is no excuse. Both the Clutch and Brake lines come to $100 even, and you get that firmer feel in the pedals from day one. Your brakes are the first thing that keeps you from crashing. Take care of them so they continue to take care of you.
