Apikol sells the front lines for $80 on their site, which comes with banjo bolts & crush washers.

can anyone confirm that the stock lines work with a new banjo bolt?
thanks

Works fine. However I recommend stainless lines. No reason to skip out on a relatively cheap item that improves brake feel

Same here, I already have stainless lines and am wondering if the banjo used for the Boxster calipers are the same for the 17/18Z's.

How did you guys clean the calipers if they were old and dirty? I currently have them soaking in simple green

Just passing here to say how awesome this upgrade is.
Just got the car back from my mechanic who installed these.

The change in brake performance is day and night, great upgrade.
