Will this come with the brake kit setup also or do you have to get them seperately? (just wondering if I should buy the whole lot at once)

Are they ADR compliant??

I know a lot of kits on the market arent legal for street use.

How easy are these to install. like would it be a good idea to get a qualified brake specialist to fit them or can pretty much anyone do it????

you can do it yourself but obviously you will need to drain your brake system and flush it. ALl you will need is a couple of open ended spanners and your set!

PLEASE DON'T TELL KIDS TO USE OPEN END SPANNERS ON BRAKE LINES. :shock: The amount of damage I have to repair on monday mornings after weekend warriors have rounded off the tube nuts could fund my retirement. PLEASE USE Tube nut spanners> :roll: :P

PS: I need a set in grey! and a price on parts to fit cruise control to EF GLI ex police car 4.0l.?

What advantages do the braided lines hold over the normal ones?

In Sydney we also have Sheafs available for the lines.

Carbon Fibre
Black
Red
Green
Yellow
Purple

and of course the metal plain with coloured ends.

will post pix of the avail colours, but otherwise looks same/similar to the ones nick has posted up.

All of the lines are legal in every state and pass every standard without a problem so no need to worry about legalities on them people!

Nomad, rubber lines expand under heat/constant use of the brakes.

Metal lines dont obviously expand giving a firmer pedal constantly.
