    I went down the courtenay braided hoses route but i didnt think they were great and were a little bit too long i had a set on my gsi and over a period of time they moved and rubbed on the inside of the wheel on my gsi and popped when going down a hill about 60 mph i had to stop on the handbrake i installed them exactly as they should have been but wern't brilliant, i have now upgraded to hel brake lines for the front which i should have done originally they have better clamps that mount through the shock, my common word is buy cheap buy twice, it could have just been a bad experience for me but im happy now Thanks

    Yes, I noticed the VXR lines from CS are a bit on the long side too..... but never caused a massive problem to me.

    Camskill always have good offers on their HEL range so Id be looking there personally

    Courts fronts on there own are £45ish.

    IIRC the HEL ones get rid of the copper pipe at the back and replace the whole lot with one braided dont they?

    HEL are on camskill for £65 + Delivery so bargain really

    Yeah from courts at £45.

    What ones you got fitted to yours?

    I would just get the Hel ones with new rears for the sake of £20.
