they would not really make that much difference with your application to be honest. if you were upgrading all the brake parts to bigger/more powerful master cylinders/slaves then possibly might feel the need. try going for cintered brake pads instead for more bite/feed back.

I luv Goodridge hoses, got 'em on my Chesil Speedster, (with silicone brake fluid), on the wife's Jetta, on my Audi 100, Tens of thousands of trouble free miles. Before that I was replacing (genuine VW) front hoses on the Audi & Jetta every 18 months, due to them bulging, and every couple of years on the Speedster, due to them collapsing internally, or the ends rusting up. I got the Goodridge ones with stainless ends, and they all look spotless, the oldest ones have been on the car since 1998. In those days, a full set cost £ 60, standard ones from VW Dealer were £ 12 each, so IMHO, well worth the extra few quid. I know prices have gone up since then, but they are still the dogs whatnots.
