Challenge - F30 Stainless Steel Brake Lines Released

Challenge - F30 Stainless Steel Brake Lines Released

Fits all F30 328 / 335 RWD and Xi Models!

This full stainless steel line kit for the F30 replaces all your flexible brake lines on your performance car. We retained the stock line configurations and mounting points for an OEM quality fit and finish.

Challenge uses stainless steel braided TeflonŽ hoses. Each line has a clear coating protecting it from any of the elements. Stainless steel braided TeflonŽ brake lines will not expand or contract under braking. This results in a vehicle with less brake pedal travel, without locking the brakes. All parts and components are DOT approved. Made in USA and includes lifetime warranty!






We should also have some installed shots this week as well

Please email or PM us with any questions.

The brake lines for the M performance brakes are the same as OEM standard brakes, so our lines should work with them as well.

Did you get these brake lines installed?
If yes, is there any noticeable difference in brake pedal travel/firmness?

I'm embarressed to report that I have still not had these installed yet (i'll blame it on the holidays) but I've got a track day in early Febuary and these WILL be installed by then.

Let us know how it goes! Sounds like you'll be one of the first people to track an F30 here in the states.

INSTALLED!....finally, lol

Results are as expected with better initial bite and firmer application under "panic stop" situations.

Works great with the M-performance brakes which although provide better braking capacity, tend to have a softer feel than the OE brakes.

Going to the track this weekend and I'm excited to put these to the test

Put the challenge lines in Saturday. Brakes are way to soft at the moment, even with challenge lines and after 3 bleeds. I'm going back tomorrow for software that we ran out of time to do and maybe another bleed but guys the pedal travel and softness are scary..Any suggestions. Feels like air in the system, but after three bleeds i'm not so sure what the problem is. I read that some have improved pedal firmness over time but as it stands, its not cool.
