Yup; all 4 lines

 

Come with all necessary fittings etc and stainless fittings from the off, not zinc coated like Goodridge etc

 

shouldn't be 6 lines?  Two from the rear body to the arms/hubs?

did you try it if so how did they turn out 

  

 

 Done it a few times, brings the mats up very well, also, I find that washing a front and rear mat only and doing two loads gets them a lot cleaner than stuffing them all in together as they have more room to move around in the machine.

Okay that makes sense I replaced the rear wheel bearings and complete brake sets on all 4 corners of the touring last year and I thought i seen them.

 

Why are they not present on the saloon?

Nope, just 4 straight lines :)

Hi folks. I'm new to this forum, but have done >200k miles in e39s ... not to mention another 200k miles in e30/e36s.

Today I replace pads all round (Pagid, £42.99 from ECP), cleaned the disks up (bit of a lip forming), and adjusted the handbrake while I was at it.

The car recently passed MoT, but as there wasn't much meat left on the pads, I decided to save the sensors! :)

Give the washing machine a quick short cycle afterwards too otherwise there culd be grit in there still; with it being heavy and probably sinking to the bowels, in readiness for the next load of your tighty whiteys :lol:

Well the 17yr mats came out quite good I think, might stick it back in for a second wash and see if that small bit at the heal area comes out

Received a leak-off test kit so finally going to have a go at checking my injectors this weekend as it looks like an easy enough task (famous last words..) 

 

Also, hopefully, going to have yet another look at my Webasto heater which has completely packed up and died again if I can find some decent hardstanding to get the car jacked up - the area around my lockup is looking more like a swamp right now! Not exactly sure what's happened but I'm secretly hoping the main connector has just come a little loose as I was struggling to securely clip it into place. And got a replacement dosing pump coming in the post which I could look to change-in if I get the unit itself alive / working. 

 

Lastly planning to do an oil change.

There are the 2 short hoses from the ABS unit to metal pipes in the engine bay. A bit challenging to replace but when you think about the heat generated in a V8 engine bay worth doing. I’m just ordering them from Hel

Yeah thankfully just a leak off test at this point. Read a few threads about how to remove them in a non-medieval style but if I do find a dead injector I may just take it to a specialist and get them to do it as I don’t fancy tackling that!

 Where did you get the kit? Something I've been thinking of.

Hey... grabbed this one as the reviews were good and it was a fair price:

Had a quick unbox this evening and it looks nice but wait until I give it a go this weekend for a review before buying it. Never even used a leak off test kit before or done a leak off test so... may be totally unsuitable! :)
