You've obviously never seen a pic of the dash on a 950 I guess it's effectively the same as the 640A got the 950 front end in 2005. I've never quite figured out why they didn't run the brake line down the right side and then split it over to the left rather than the other way round which leads to the long loop of hydraulic line from the right side m/c across in front of the speedo.

It's way better on the 990. Seems like 1/2 the number of lines and not blocking the speedo either. Hopefully they'll carry this forward to the 690 (though the ABS played a part in the new 990 brake hose routing so maybe not ;-)
