Dangit I don't know how that happened, I must have accidentally hit post and now it won't let me edit it.
Anyway, I like to recommend SS lines for 2 reasons:
1 - it forces you to flush your brake fluid, which most people never do over the life of the car. This is also probably where most of the increased pedal stiffness comes from as well.
2- New good stainless lines are always better than old rubber lines, especially ones over 8
years old. I've seen first hand some old rubber lines with so many deposits in them the ID is reduced to 1/4 of the size, and the calipers don't retract as easily.
Now, don't go expecting your stopping distance to shorten or anything magical like that, but they can't hurt, so long as you get a decent brand of lines that doesn't fall apart. You're on your own for finding those.
