Now if you dont track, there is zero need to upgrade the brakes...the stopping power is very good on these cars, its the brake fade with repeated use that is the problem...this should only be an issue on the track...jmho of course...
Ss lines change pedal feel and response! There is improvement !!

disagree...I have had SS brake lines and I couldnt tell at all with street driving...now you can tell on the track with repeated hard braking but the spongy feel that you feel isnt really the ss/rubber brake line difference, it the brake fluid boiling...jmho of course...

I second that. You're only fooling yourself if replacing the brake lines will make a difference when you're out on the tracks or even on the streets. Replacing the brake pads are the key. Honestly, the brake pads that come with our car are good enough. It would only make sense to me to invest in pricey Brembo pads for an //M series vehicle. Ceramics would be sweet...
