    You UK folks have such funny names for stuff. What the heck is "kunifer"?

    It is an alloy made from copper/nickel and iron it is much better than steel or copper for making brake lines. It doesn't rust and is easily bent but stronger than pure copper

    OK thanks. So this is probably just something I in my ignorance have never heard of. But that still doesn't explain "aluminium" :)

    I know some countries have banned the use of pure copper brake lines for automotive use. I think kunifer is an attempt to find something better than copper/steel. It is much easier to work with compared to steel and pretty much lasts for ever

    What's wrong with copper? I have some on the Wartburgs but it is not used at all to my knowledge here in the US.

    I know it's banned in Australia. I think if not supported properly it can harden and fracture . I think it's rare but does happen ( hence ban) Kunifer doesn't have this problem
