    RS5 ECS Tuning brake lines

    Had them installed a few weeks ago. Pedal was not any firmer and sometimes vibration feedback when i hit the brake pedal. Perhaps there is still a small air pocket in the lines? Any feedback.

    If ECS hoses are very rigid in construction then you will feel any imperfection in the disc surface as it will be fed back to the pedal.

    Who installed them for you?

    It's not the ABS cutting in prematurely that your feeling through the pedal is it?

    I'm not a believer in uprated hoses unless you're tracking the car every week, standard hoses are pretty good construction now and hardly have any flex in the walls under pressure so the claims of a firmer pedal I believe are a little exaggerated.

    They were done by a top shop in New York. Its not ABS kicking in. Its funny it doesn't always do it. Car only has 800 miles on it. No track days. Going to have them bled again tomorrow.

    Typically you will only notice a firmer pedal under heavy braking. You really wont notice a difference driving normally.

    Shop checked everything. Said maybe a hot spot on the front rotors. I drove the car with a few hard stops, and now it is gone. Is this normal. I do mostly really short local driving and i don't track. Not going to buy new rotors, i don't think dealer would warranty. Hopefully its fixed. Maybe the lines just gave me a little more feedback through the pedal.

    Not in my experience. I've had two different sets at one point and ended up throwing them out due to various issues. Started using goodridge and never had issues again. This was years ago, so hopefully they were Improved since, but nevertheless this is my experience.

    We 100% stand behind the products we make and sell, this being said we would have been happy to work with you on a solution. But unless we know about issues we cannot correct them.

    Feel free to send me a PM with more detail.

    Not to mention Goodridge doesn't even make stainless lines for the RS5.
