Yes, I never went with the BMW reservoir, I've had the old style Girling reservoirs that came off the old Austin Healey cars. They're mounted over on the driver side fender well, as you can see in the first pic below. The second and third pics show the hard line configuration both exiting and entering the brake box area. For the most part, they are pretty well insulated by the frame. Now, I will tell you that the Girling reservoirs, while looking cool, are a PITA to get to where they don't leak and don't slosh. On the other hand, I can't imagine having those black rubber lines running up behind the pedals inside the foot box.
