    I saw on EuroBraking.com they have front stainless steel lines for 18z's with 90* compression fittings (for $77.50) as opposed to using a Banjo Bolt and Crush Washers...

    Stoptech 17Z/18Z Stainless Brake Lines for Audi

    What did you end up going with?

    I already have stainless steel lines, be great to re-use them if they work out length wise, I'm sure some banjo bolts and crush washers would be a whole lot cheaper.

    This is only about $20 more expensive than the rockauto alternative. I'll be saving this.

    Thanks!

    I ended up going with these:

    https://audibbkparts.bigcartel.com/p...r-decals-110mm

    They are the same as what you posted, just a different retailer. Based on everything I read, I would rather go with this fitting rather than a banjo bolt

    Dickass?

    Don't think I want to run rotors branded as Dickass........

    Seems like a good deal but I wouldn't be surprised if they crack before a year is over. Seems too cheap.

    Glad you got the humor in it.

    Reading the description I am almost curious what you get for that price point.

    Though the brand name may basically be explaining it simply. You get a dick in the ass if you decide to buy it.

    99.9% sure the listing text is weird and you are just getting the steel rotors not even hats or hardware for that price.



    There is more than one mounting system of rotor to hat so these will also only work as replacements with hats/hardware that the rotor is meant to mount to.
