Hello all

is there any difference in front ,, vs 535 540 M5 with the LUCAS-Girling oem brakelines on the BT

i was considering to buy Stainless steel hoses ,,

for E34 530 535 540 M5 as they are the same,,

i was just wandering if oem E34 hose would bolt on the BT brakes,, iirc the bolt is not 11 but bigger



i am going to buy these if this would fit

Since the brake lines are not listed as a separate part in the BT parts list, the E34 brake lines should work.

I've actually bought a set of stainless lines to try in the Biturbo. The ones I bought were spec'd for a regular 535i and I held the front lines up to see how they compared and they were about right, so I assumed the rest for the rear should also be fine. That said, I haven't put them in yet as it is cold and the car is in hibernation but come the spring I will be putting them in for sure. Made a notable difference in braking power in my 850i, so I would expect similar results with the Biturbo too...

Ferrari - Bmw

I bought a set of E34, BF Goodrich SS hoses back and front for my B10
from Driftworks UK. They fit and perform fine.

Come in some nice colours as well
