phil,  i just replaced all four hoses on my 200 w/ the g60 brakes.  got
them from  as i recall,  i used the '92 s4 hoses
for the front and the regular '91 200 20v hoses for the rear.  they had
them in stock.  free shipping too... just make sure that 1) you blow
the sand away from everything w/ an air blower before you start; 2) you
are using a brake wrench so as not to strip the bleeder screw; and 3)
overfill the reservoir before you start.  the hoses came off pretty
easily w/ no rounding of the fittings.  took me about an hour and a
half being very neat and careful...
