stainless steel brake lines

Hi, i'm planning to buy stainless steel brake lines for my brembos. I searched ebay and
the best brand i can find is goodridge(actually i looked for brembo, endless etc
but there wasn't any) Anyway i'll probably be happy with goodridge, i read lots of
nice feedback for them but i have a small problem There are two types i can buy, both
consisting of a PTFE inner with stainless steel outer braid, clear plastic protective
coating. But one has stainless steel fittings and the other has zinc plated fittings.
The one with ss fitting is twice as much expensive then the zinc plated(74 vs. 142)
Now as the subject is brakes, i don't want to get crapy stuff but i couldn't find the
advantages/disadvantages between them. Which one should i buy? Is it worth buying the
the one with stainless steel fitting? I would be glad to get some advise from people
much more experienced then me.
Thank you very much.

If it was a show car I'd buy the stainless as it can be kept shiny and clean whereas the zinc coated will dull after a while.

So is this the only difference it will make? There won't be any difference in reliability, brake preformance etc.
