NEW! UUC stainless steel brake lines available for all E46 - intro special!


(actual product differs slightly in appearance)


"Performance tune" your braking system.

Stainless steel brake lines for improved braking performance

100% MADE IN USA and DOT-APPROVED

Original brake lines are rubber and can expand under the normal pressure of use. This expansion of the brake line negatively affects the brake caliper piston travel, and makes for mushy pedal feedback.


UUC's Stainless Steel Brake lines are used to "performance tune" your braking system.

* Inner TeflonŽ line is covered with woven stainless steel braid that will not expand under pressure. The advantages include better brake pedal feedback and a firmer pedal, along with superior brake modulation. Results will be immediate.

Technical features:

  • fully compliant with DOT Standards (MVSS-106)

  • lines burst-tested to 6000psi
    (maximum tested pressure from a BMW braking system is 1200psi)

  • TeflonŽ inner line covered with a woven layer of stainless steel and covered in an abrasion-resistant material (translucent blue plastic covering).

  • plastic end pieces protect assembly, no exposed steel fibers to stick fingers.

Introductory pricing:

$95 4-line kit for 1999-2005 3-series and M3


CLICK HERE TO ORDER

Professional installation recommended.
Installer responsible for correct fitting and bleeding procedure as recommended by BMW.
As brake line installation is a safety-related item, installer assumes all responsibilities and risks associated with brake line replacement.

Installation is pretty easy, just uncscrew the original fittings and screw the new lines in. You have to bleed the brake system afterwards, but that's also a good idea (brake systems should be bled ever 12-30 months depending on usage style).

If a shop were doing the installation, figure 1-2 hours max. If you are already having a brake service done (new pads/rotors), then the lines should only add another 30 minutes' worth of labor.

If only this were a DIY install (I don't have a break bleeding system ) I would do it

A pressure bleeder is really not that expensive... heck, a lot of people make their own from a Home Depot pressurized sprayer bottle, some hose, and a spare brake reservoir cap.

Saw these today over at UUC's shop. Very nice product and a decent price too. Too bad these came a few weeks to late. I just did a full brake pad/fluid change. No need to go through that process again anytime soon. Maybe in a few months?

Ditto! If I hadnt just done a complete change and flush a month ago I would put these on now as well!

I think the $95 program price is scheduled for a few weeks. After that, they may be $129.

You get a brake fluid flush done at the same time. I would expect a shop to charge 2 hours or less.
