    Sounds a bit much to me however it depends on what they are replacing (a small section, a large section, multiple sections?)

    Mine had an advisory at least years MOT. Gave them a rub down and a lick of paint and they were fine this year.

    Braided lines would replace rubber lines, which wouldn't be the ones that are corroded. You wouldn't replace metal pipes with braided ones.
