Looks nice! Does the master cylinder brace and stainless steel lines improve the brake pedal feel noticeably? I am considering one or both of these, since I am not a fan of the stock mushy feel when hitting the brakes. Not sure which of these parts make the biggest difference.

The master cylinder brace there was a noticeable more responsive pedal feel, as for the stainless lines I have yet to test them out

Update: Went to the canyons this past weekend, highly recommend there was absolutely zero brake fade even with street pads and even got better as I got some temperature in the fluid. Brake pedal felt consistent the whole time.

He is likely focused on how much $ OP was willing to toss at wheels and got ok coilovers.

It is likely OP is more appearance focused thus the wheels. If its not hitting the track it wont matter and 90% of people will never know the difference between $1500 BCs and $4500 MCSs on the street. Baised on spring rates the goal in not to get much movement suspension wise.

Coilovers are just fine? "good" coil overs won't make you a better driver.
