    Need advice on Stainless braided brake lines

    On my Christmas Wishlist I have a set of Stainless steel braided brake lines.
    But I am not sure which one to buy, and how much lines should be replaced.
    I've seen sets of 6 lines, and set of 4 lines.
    My idea would be to replace them all or not to bother doing this.

    So, for an E82 135i with M-tech, can anyone tell me how many lines there are to be replaced to upgrade the whole braking system from rubber braking hoses to Stainless braided lines?

    On the brand side, I can locally order a set of UUC Motorwerks brake llines. But I never heard of that brand before.

    Modbargains has AMS brake lines.

    Seen Stoptech lines on one of the Sponsorsites, but it was very unclear which ones I needed there...

    Any suggestions on brand or where to order? They need to be able to ship to Europe...
    Thanks.

    @yandyr was going to buy a set too I think... You two need to talk.
    Some people live long, meaningful lives.

    Other people eat shit and die.

    I'm not racist, I hate everybody equally; especially fat people.

    I bought the set from ECSTuning bring 6 lines, which is two for the fronts, two for the rears, and then the middle lines.. which should replace the entire system.. at least leading up to the cylinder. I just received them and may install on Sunday 12/11 after my track session on 12/10.. have another track session on 12/17 .. so we'll find out how they work

    Thanks Yandyr.
    Why did you go for ECS brake lines?

    Quality's good, and price comparison it's not the cheapest, but not the most $$ either.. so felt like it was a good in-between.

    I installed the ECS front and rear brake lines today 12/11/2011. Did not do the mids, simply because I forgot and then I ran out of daylight.. Will do the next track session with this on 12/17 next Saturday, stock rotors and calipers and Cool Carbon pads. I'll report back how that goes, but will also test it out during the week a bit.

    The install was easy as cake, just obviously had to bleed the brake line (which I ended up flushing just to see how the brake fluid was from the track day yesterday 12/10/2011). Seemed ok, not dirty, clean clear fluid RBF 600, flushed with ATE Super Blue.

    I'll keep you posted.

    No problem.
    Lines arrived last monday in perfect condition. Thanks Diego and Andrew.

    Only snag is that the local rent a bridge garage seems to have gone out of business in 2012, so I need to find a place where I can install these...
