Mark:  A couple years ago I got a set from GPR (German Parts and
Restoration). My understanding is they sell two types: with and without some
form of certification that they are good for road use.  Look in European Car
magazine, too: several places state they sell the stainless lines.

I've read somewhere that the stainless/teflon don't flex as well as rubber
during suspension travel, and may wear through over time.  True/false?  Are
the stainless wrapped teflon always better than OEM?  What benefit beside a
slightly stiffer pedal due to less expansion than the rubber lines?
