    I've got a bit of an emergency here, long story short- I'm out of town and I need to source some brake lines for my front. If the mini dealer doesn't have them, I'm going to need to know the specs for the fittings so I can source them somewhere else. Anyone know what the fittings are? Thanks in advance.

    I do know that it depends on what year MINI you have, the early years, 02-04 there where changes on the fittings.

    I also hear NAPA has MINI parts.

    And there were changes yet again from the 05/06 to 2nd gen fittings at the caliper end.

    I have an 02, so the oldest fittings. I'm not sure the fronts changed across the r53 range, but I could be wrong. I know it's not on one end, banjo on the other.

    When I put SS brake lines on, it was the rears that were the issue. The fronts should be banjos on the fronts.

    Unfortunately I'm out oftown and don't have time for someone to ship them. Might have to tow the car home.

    Yeah, but if you tell him your story he should be willing/able to at least tell you what you need to know.

    Where are you at? I've got lines at the shop and can overnight them, or we can see if we have a source near you. Feel free to give me a call.
