Brake fluid, I would think you should go with the best you can find as the cost difference is very minimal compared to the labor work involved. In terms of the SS brake lines, that's a toss up. With older cars, OEM brake lines do tend to deteriorate and expand causing less connected feel and poor modulation. With that said, our cars really aren't that old anymore and the construction may be better. I know that with my older 1990 miata, the SS brake lines do make a big difference due to the deteriorated brake lines, old brake fluid and brake modulation is much more important as it didn't have ABS. Personnally I wouldn't think it would be necessary for SS brake lines for street use, however for your piece of mind, it might be nice to get the SS lines. Cost isn't huge on those either.
