Never heard about the cables being "brittle" although they are a pain in the arse to fit connections too from what I've heard.

They have a kind of kevlar lining I think with a plastic inner, supposedly making them significantly stronger than standard Magura plastic lines.

What you say about the cleaning out is definitely true, a lot of the early Denguras ( not sure if its the same with the new ones ) had problems with swarf not being removed from the barrel. When used this caused scoring inside and thus leaks.

Ye, cheaper on here though once you're validated :) You'll probably only have to buy a couple of bits to get yours going again anyway.
