This has been discussed in depth on the Quattro list. The general consensus
seems to be for the street go with standard lines, for the track or a mix
car, run braided. A lot of track guys change their braided lines every year,
so as to not worry about failure.
They are stiffer, and I think in the long run this makes them more prone to
failure. Just my random thoughts.........
BTW, I have braided lines on the fromt of my car, and I noticed NO
difference in pedal feel or brake modulation when I made the switch. Next
time, I'll go back to stock.
However, on a car that old, I'd say it's probably a good idea to replace all
four with something new :)
