    Why would you need these?

    I hardly ever use my brakes.



    Now- if you had some "regenerative brake lines".....then I might consider it. <--------wait.......what am I saying"?

    This is obviously for people that track their cars.

    I was tempted to get them but 99% of my driving is commuting so it would be a waste. Not even sure why I got the P model.... Oh wait its because its AWESOME.

    Good luck with the sale OP.

    I think that if I were doing it all over, I'd be tempted to get the dual motor P model,
    and with the FSD. Simply because it's AWESOME, and I love watching things go
    bye bye in the right rear view mirror. But I'd stick to the black paint, have it chrome
    deleted and the windows tinted.

    That said, minor issues aside, I'm quite happy with the MR RWD + EAP I bought,
    the dream config above is a bit rich for my budget.

    I am selling these because I have two sets. One I bought before I purchased the BBK, which came with a set of SS lines.

    How noticeable of a difference do SS brake lines make?

    I have a question.

    Where do you have the opportunity to show off brake lines in a Tesla?

    Are we removing the frunk buckets at auto-shows or something?

    Its not like chroming out an ICE engine bay or something.

    Its utility is for times of more spirited driving. If you compare a Model 3 non-P's braking with a german or other performance sedan, it's quite a big difference and feels very weak and mushy. To me, the OEM brake system provides very little confidence.

    Because you have a P3D+ with upgraded braking and suspension - I was referring to non-P vehicles. I test drove one but don't recall how it felt but it's quite a bit better according to a number of reviews.

    The pedal feel with SS will be firmer compared to stock rubber hose. This has the benefit for better brake control and modulation on track driving where fine brake control is essential.
