Brake line twisted / snapped Help

Changing the lines on the M3 and have had quite an issue with them. Basically I started to loosen the coupling (top side - 11mm) and it was turning the whole line rather than just the couple/ nut itself.

Result being - one snapped off entirely as it looked like it was rotating but was actually twisting right at nut and the other two I try have twisted the line 1/4 turn. I tried holding the hard line with vice grips but no luck.

I was using the right tools and technique Im sure as the first one I did worked fine.

What are my options?

The part for reference

The hardline that needs to be replaced is available from BMW as a spare part. They're about $20 in the US. The same website will give you the part numbers for your particular model year and locale and you can just order them from a dealer. See items 3 and 4 in the diagram in the link:
