    B7 A4 Brakes, which lines?

    So as title for 2.0T/3.2/S4 brakes.
    Are the B5 S4 lines for the Hp2 caliper direct fit and proper length for the B7 A4 calipers or would I have to get the lines or aftermarket equivalent?

    I have goodridge braided SS B5 S4 lines BNIB, hopefully can use them with that pair.

    All B5 calipers use the same line. They have a small bracket, which is positioned in the same place regardless of the caliper, and then use a hardline from this bracket to the caliper itself.

    The B6 cars use the same system.

    So as long as your B6 calipers come with the bracket and hardline, your good to go.

    ah ok thanks mate! so length shouldn't be an issue. Come to think of it, probably have a little bit more slack with the B7 A4/S4 calipers over the HP2s.
