The kitty looks like you just scared the crap out of him, I paid 30 for 1 front rubber one, but they look good

Got them here (http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=320065832821&ssPageName=ADME:B:BOC:MOT:1)

Pretty legit seller - I didn't read about any complaints about any brake lines he sells.

Oh no.... You bought the ones I got.... when I installed mine they leaked like crazy... I emailed the seller he said that he sent me the wrong ones (they look just like the ones you have) so I am in the process of getting new ones from the seller. Hopefully the brake lines on a 2.8 are different than on the 1.8T good luck and get lots of brake fluid and towels

yeah I was disappointed when I installed them... all four corners leaked really bad. I put thread tape on them and the rear lines stopped leaking, but the fronts continued. Also one of the rear lines is not the correct length (about 3 inches longer than stock) but can be made to fit. I truly hope you have much better luck than I did because it was very disappointing after they were all hooked up and they start leaking like crazy.

That sux to hear. I was definately thinking of picking these up.
I guess i'll wait for wood_e to install his before I go buying these.
Hope you get the right ones.

They look like the ones on ECS's site, but I'll have a look this weekend.

Don't drive too fast wood just incase you have to stop. I wouldn't trust ebay with my brakes...

I have a SS set waiting to go on. Fronts are StoTech and rears are Goodrich. Quality looks amazing, specially the Stoptechs. I also have a Motive power bleeder and Castrol GT LMA fluid. I guess i need a flare nut wrench and patience. THis is something that needs to be done right first try.
