Yes the long one, I did bend it back so its mostly straight. However there is a tiny bend/kink still in it, nothing that will stop the flow, but possibly restrict it a little? If everyone thinks ill be ok ill leave it as is, if not I may just buy another line, haven't looked into how much that will cost yet....

after talking with some people I decided I'm gunna keep my 328i body harnesses and add in the wiring for the pedals. I also have to extend some wires for the Dsc since my asc wires r on the drivers side while the M3 dsc Is located on the passenger side, all of this seems pretty easy and less hastle then pulling out and switching the entire harness.
