    You can get them custom made.

    I did the same on my old Audi S2, just took the standard rubber ones to my local hydraulics hose specialists, and the copied them in stainless steel braid.

    Cost me 30 for the pair, so pretty good.

    likewise.
    I am having some made up now. find a friendly motorsport supplier and they will undoubtedly be able to make some up. goodridge should be able to point you towards a local supplier

    I can highly recomend goodridge, their customer support is unparalelled.

    I bought a set and due to my car being some kind of VAG hybrid the rear hoses wouldnt fit, so they made some specially for me with no questions and carriered them out at no charge at all. For that i recomend them highly, also the pipes are great, improved feel and response from the pedal

    byzan: isnt your car just a 97> A4 with alloy rear calipers? Or was there more wrong than just the rear hoses

    mine is a 98 with alloy calipers, the kit was supplied that should have bolted on. It appears there is a discrepency somewhere around 97-98 with the fitment of the rear caliper hoses, with them being banjo and not direct screw in. I recomende goodridge as they were very good in sorting this out for me,even though i bought the kit from another user that sold his car before fitting them
