You will be fine with standard brakes mate :D your brakes the same as the is300 and you will have much the same power :winky:

Yeah as Steve said I'm one of the folks who've fitted Goodridge SS brake lines and it has improved the feel of the brakes a lot. It used to feel like i was getting lots of fade before and now the brakes feel much better and I have a lot more confidence in them. Well worth fitting along with DOT5.1 brake fluid.

As said before the brakes are more than good enough for an SC'd IS200 as they are fitted to similar powered cars such as the IS300, GS300 and N/A Supra.

How much did they cost ? I see that Prolex has some stainless brake lines for £83.

where would i find good stainless breake lines?

thanks

were the goodridge hoses easy to fit? do the ends twist or are they fixed? i had some specially fabricated for my mini as i heard the goodridge ones were a pig to fit? did notice a big difference when they were fitted, i think im right in saying that the standard hoses sort of bulge when on the brakes hard?
