custom brake lines possible?

At my brake master cylinder, their are only 2 holes for brake lines and only 1 brake line is there...Can I buy a brake line thats pre-made to fit or do I have to buy a straight one and bend it somehow? I have a 2000 323i if that matters.

What would be the use of that? If your brakes are working fine i wouldn't mess with any of that stuff. Are you wanting to have a brake bias controller or something like that?

I bought the car like this so it was missing that hard line. There are suppose to be 2 hard lines coming out of my master cylinder but I only see one. So I'm wondering if I can buy the hard line prebent or Do I have to get one custom made?

haha no i'm not driving the car...that would be insane...i had my friend tow it to my house and I'm working on it in my garage. It use to be a parts car so its missing a bunch of things. One of them just so happened to be one of the hardlines coming out of the brake master cylinder.

which 2 are the ones that come out of the brake master cylinder? I remember seeing I think a 325i, it had 4 lines in the master cylinder? (Maybe I'm wrong) But mine has 2 for sure.

I don't see why you couldn't have some custom stainless steel brake lines made. It's just a matter of using the right fittings on the ends.

That would turn out to be more expensive (and potentially dangerous). Just follow Stuart's advice and buy the missing parts.
