I got nice stainless lines for the fronts (I have UFOs) for less than that - and
no adaptors were needed. AFAIK, the UFO and G60 use the same line. The one I got
was a few inches longer than OEM - but no big deal. It fits fine.

Try Rick at importpartsspec.com if you want to do the rear or you want DOT
approved. No sense messing with anything else when you can get the real thing
for less money.
Are these lines good for 5000 PSI burst pressure? Are they OK with brake fluid?
