Ok, now I'm lost. I have ordered THREE front brake lines, to replace a leaker (left caliper line) and every one has had an incorrect fitting The caliper needs a45 degree end, and ALL of the new ones have arrived with a 90 degree end.And no, no one anywhere here will make a brake line. I HAVE checked all over.
Anyone have a used (or new) correct line for a 2000 ABS (Brembo caliper) with a 45 degree end. Bobs, Max, and Pandora Motorsports all have the incorrect lines from BMW. I'll gladly pay the $40. or so, but don't have the cash for a complete Speigler set-up. Anyone ???? :confused:

Speigler is usually easy to work with. Give them a call, I bet they will sell you just the line you need. I suggest that you replace at least both of the lower lines.

Yeah, they told me that they would only sell the lines as a complete kit,because of it being ABS. Hmm......

The OEM front lines are 45 degrees. The aftermarket lines are 90 degrees. Both will work just fine. I just finished installing another Spiegler kit (6 lines) and other than a few adjustments on the banjo fittings everything worked out great. The minor adjustment on the double banjo ends is normal.

The 90 degree caliper end will not work. It must be a 45 degree to attach at the caliper. I still don't understand BMW not realizing the error in manufacturing. I may install hard lines at this rate. :crazy:

I need the left (shifter side). I got ANOTHER incorrect one today. :mad:
I am eventually going to get the Speigler set, but with a daughter in nursing school, and a 17 year old son driving, I'm gonna have to wait a little while. You wanna sell yours ? :D
