Wouldn't know if they're the best but I got a set of Goodridge hoses from the UK - good quality. Whatever you buy make sure they're DOT approved

Check with Garagistic. Their E28 stainless lines may fit ?

Hi Richard
The hose fitting in the front calipers is different on the M635 compared to other models. Make sure you get a kit specific for M635 M6 or E28 M5; if it says it also fits 635CSI then it’s not the correct kit. I bought Goodridge lines from the UK with the DOT labels and these passed rego ok with the engineers certificate.

Some local brake repair shops are licensed to make them.
