    I'm having the same issues with the Wilwood (adapter) fitting that goes from the hard line to the flex line. It is leaking at the hard line. On the OEM, I can literally hand tighten the hard line and there is no static leak. With the Wilwood Adapter I have put what feels like way too uch torque and it still leaks. I think that the angle of the seat that meets the hard line is incorrect. I tried BOTH front adapter fittings and they both leaked. Burned through 1 whole bottle of Motul 5.1 before giving up. VERY, VERY disappointed, Wilwood. In the Fiat Wilwood Video above the tech hand tightened the hard line which is as it should be. They must have changed suppliers? I suspect the rear kit will also leak as bsc70 has indicated. I ordered a Competizione Sport Tuning Stainless Steel Brake Line Kit from 500 Madness. Lets see how that does.

    Give an update to this as you progress.
    This is disheartening - this was my next planned upgrade.
    Not that it matters, but where did you purchase the kit from?

    I bought my Wilwoods through NGEN Performance in 2017. Didn't have these problems, but there was an issue with the rear pads being too thick and needing trimming.

    I did have issues with my existing brake lines not wanting to detach from the car, but it's hard to make that Wilwood's fault.

    I have this kit waiting on installation in my garage - is it worth reaching out to Wilwood / NGEN on this?
