steel brake lines

I recall that when the Z4M was new, it was considered a must among the, very knowledgeable community for the specific car back then, to upgrade the stock brake lines.

Haven't seen much posted on this topic for the M2/M2C. Have people swapped theirs? Into what brand?

Those of you that have, seen any improvement?

I do it on all of my motorcycles and did it on the M2 before first track day. I think it's a must, as it helps to keep consistent braking with less fade. They work.

Brand probably doesn't matter. I have ECS lines though they may be rebrands, not sure tbh.

Also while you're at it, put in Castrol SRF DOT 5 fluid.

Newer BMW's have Kevlar lined flexi hoses so less of a need to swap to SS lines.

Went ahead and purchased a set from Goodridge, thanks for the replies.

Good choice with Castrol SRF React performance BF.

I'm using on std brakes (discs. calipers, hoses & pads) and helps with keeping pedal feel and bite more consistent for longer

SS Brake lines

Installed them on mine about a year ago. Cannot say I noticed any difference. It does give additional insurance against any debris slicing open a brake line when on the track.
