Goodridge Braided Lines from Tire rack $168. Used on my 99 540 Sport and 95 M3. Great quality.

ECS Tuning makes some nice 6-piece brake lines with OEM caliper connectors as well.

They're the cheapest I've found in my quick search. Any testament to their quality?

Also, any suggestions on a fluid? I will not track or brake like crazy, just need something decent for street driving.

You might want to take a look at the Mechünik Stainless Steel & Teflon Brake Lines. These brake lines are made out of the highest quality materials, from the stainless steel fittings and sleeves to the nylon and teflon sheathing. They are also very durable and will most likely outlast the life of your vehicle.

Those midlines are no joke, if you don't drop the sub, plan on spending a LONG time installing them.

It can be done without dropping the subframe. You just need small hands to work in there.
