I was disappointed that the frame end of the rear brake line didn't key into the stock bracket like the factory one did. And a little surprised there was not a provided way to secure the VSS wire like the factory line did.
On the front lines my biggest challenge by far was removing the factory spring clips. My fault completely, not the kit's. Wish I didn't tear them up removing them because the supplied clips were too thick to be fully installed and the factory clips might have worked better. I also had to flatten one side of the brake line body slightly with a hand file to fit into the stock D shaped hole. I'd rather have to flatten a spot then have them rotating within the brackets. Though I had to decide how the lines were to be routed and twisted so that I could file the flat spot at the correct location.
As far as longer, good looking brake lines go, these meet that expectation. If your expectations are factory fitment then you should find you a local "hose guy" and make yours longer. AND I suggest you to figure out how to remove those dang front retaining clips!!
