325i - 335i brake conversion done. My eBrake does NOT work.

One word of advice -- If/When you put SS lines on, make sure you pre-twist the line before you put the line on... otherwise, since the SS lines are so stiff, they'll want to unwind and leak brake fluid...

I had this happen 2x - for my rear driver's brake... on my drive home from the shop, noticed my DSC and traction control went out... this was because the DSC runs on brake fluid, and i was near empty -- could've been disastrous. Also, 2 weeks later, when I was driving from NY to MD, my brake started leaking fluid again (same spot). Once i took the line out, pre-twisted it before install, haven't had issues since -- 3 weeks now.

Other than that -- i must say, the 325i brakes are not that far behind 335i brakes. on the 335i brakes, there's less brake fade, but the stopping distance is very similar.
