    From what i've read the aluminium crimped Goodridge ones fail the ADR wip test as the aluminium cuts into the braid. Some Goodridge lines may be ADR certified however not all are. You need to check if buying them.

    But it's good to see some guys here do have the ADR certified lines.

    it's not worth risking yours or someones elses life to save $50 when it comes to brakes and the braking system

    Been running the goodridge lines on the 4g for a number of years now - they're holding up fine.

    Yes mine too. The point of all this is the legalities. Although I'm sure there are many other non-legal things we do too.....

    My Goodridge lines are DOT approved. From what I read DOT approval requires subjecting to the same 35hr pressurised whip test as the ADR whip test. Silly standards.

    Was going to buy some till I realised that my car came from Honda with them. Still working fine after maybe 7+ years. Maybe I should replace them? Less than 50,000km's, but still. Car was serviced just last week, but as per the OP, you can't really inspect them.

    Pretty sure there was a trader on OzHonda who sells ADR approved goodridge lines.

    Mine are not ADR so far as I can tell. They are Goodridge G-Stop, DOT approved as purchased from the states. This is my concern. I'm contemplating if I should be re-installing the stock lines or getting a set of ADR braided lines made.

    JDM Yard has them for $185 shipped Australia wide. Have to order them in for our cars though, so maybe the price would be higher? Be exactly the same lines I would imagine, just with ADR tags. Then again they are supposed to be from the UK, so I guess they could be different.

    Those are the same lines as mine. Note that the product does not refer to the ADR approval.

    The seller states FMVSS 106 which is the DOT standard. This DOES NOT mean that they are ADR approved.

    I'd love to see the ADR certification proof on these.

    http://www.perthbrakeparts.com.au/ss-braided-hoses.asp <- sells ADR approved and suggests that maybe the regular Goodridge aren't? I get the feeling that all the claims that they are ADR approved just mean that they would pass (since they have passed similar tests elsewhere), but they aren't actually approved and therefore not street legal.

    At any rate my car came with Goodridge lines installed by Honda Australia. Hard to make out the yellow label without taking the wheel off, but it also appears to say racing.

    If you can organise a set of braided brake lines for under $200 a set, and will help support local aussie industry, you can count me 100% in. I am replacing my discs and pads, so might as well. I was shopping around for braided lines already.

    I am planning to replace my brakes in 2 months so keep us updated?

    Quoting someone else from Perth-WRX today.

    Perth brake parts made my braided clutch line for $110

    They also quoted me $130 per brake line, you must provide a sample
    So at $520 and you fit yourself. No thanks. It's got me stuffed why the ADR ones cost so much more than the DOT approved ones. It's not like the materials cost more....

    These HEL lines on ebay say they are ADR approved, decent price also.

    I got my clutch line done in braided SS, took the stock one off took it to brake/clutch line shop & 10 minutes later at $80 was all done and legal... I forgot to ask how much for the brake lines tho
