After reading the recent thread about the stainless steel brake lines, 
I felt compelled to check the condition of the lines that were 
installed on my S6 about five years ago.  I was surprised to learn 
that the right rear line was badly frayed near the coupling to the 
hard brake line (see attached pictures).  These lines came from 
Paragon Performance. The other three lines looked fine with the 
exception of rusty couplings.  I'm not sure what caused the RR line to 
fray but the exposed SS threads are extremely sharp and would have no 
problem cutting through the brake hose underneath. Check your SS brake 
lines periodically!
