    Default Braided Brake Hoses

    How much difference do these make when fitted to your car? Has anybody got a set fitted?

    Thanks

    I've got the Goodridge ones on the front but the rears don't fit.
    The banjo is 10mm IIRC and they need to be 12mm.
    I sent an email to Goodridge on monday and their making me some new rears with 12mm banjos for free ( i know - i know ! I've already paid for the ones that don't fit !)
    Anyway they do feel a little firmer than std rubber hoses.


    Have consideration for the deaf, if you're gunna fart, make it smell !
