Default Brake lines for an R56

Anyone have any recommendations for SS lines for a R56?

I'm gonna swing by Detroit Tuned on Monday and pick up a set of theirs. I'll report back when I get them on.

I have some SS lines for my car. How hard is it to bleed the brakes? I have never done it and would very much like the car to stop after I replace the lines!!

plan on using a pressure bleeder or by depressing the pedal? And just bleed or fully flush the system, if the fluid is 3-4 years old might want to just flush it, isnt much more work is you are using a bleeder.

It really is not difficult if you are mechanically incline, I did it for the first time 2 months ago, think it took me about 4 hours including getting all the tools together, car in the air/wheels off, changing the brake lines and fully flushing the system. Bear in mind I work slow and methodically while doing new things wit my car lol I could see it being done in about 2 hours or less for the first time if you keep a steady pace and have everything ready.

If you plan to use a bleeder or flush the system (which i suggest as it makes life so much easier) i can write you up a step by step guide of what i did if youd like.

have about 5k miles since doing it and everything seems to be perfect, brake pedal feels much stiffer and responsive.

If you are just going to pump the pedal to bleed the new line you should have a buddy help to monitor the bleed valve as you pump the pedal etc. Never done it this way, but i assume you crack the bleed valve on the caliper, pump the pedal until the fluid runs out clear of bubbles, also while ensuring you have enough fluid in the reservior as you go. Working from pass. rear to driver rear, pass. front, driver front.

for the 2 man method:
a line running off of the bleeder valve into a jug or glass bottle.
1 person cracks the valve open, other man pumps 3-4 times, last pump holding the pedal down.
while the inside man holds the pedal down outside man closes the valve. repeat until no more bubbles come out of the line.

Thanks for the answers. I have only had the car coming up on a year so not planning on flushing, just put them on and bleed. Guess I will give it a go and see what happens
