front brake line ...grrrrrr !

I popped a left front brake line, and after recieving two WRONG lines, I'm stuck. Looks like BMW doesn't know their bikes(or fittings ). Both lines were the correct part # (ABS), but both have a 90 degree bend at the caliper, not the 45 degree needed for the caliper .
I guess Spiegler is next. I just needed one little line......and nope. NO shop in the Jackson area even will consider making brake lines. Seems liability issues have stoppped all of 'em from paricipating in the custom brake line business.
Sorry...rant over. I feel better now.
