Coolant hoses

Recommended Posts

If i replace the 5 hoses on my 330Ci with discount from BMW its £233 !!!!!

 

Any other good options out there, OEM appears to be Rein but only buy from the USA unless 

someone knows better

I bought OE this morning, some hoses i found on my search listed as OEM when clearly they're not and a few 

like on GSF just listed as standard hoses whatever that means, the cheapies might very well last but i'm not

taking the chance.

The main  dealer might not be as expensive as you'd think. Pay them a visit and cost it up. I think it will work out about the same.

Already did but they're twice the price of the carparts places, i bit the bullet and OE hoses are waiting to be collected from my local BMW dealer, i got 20% off all the OE parts i've bought. The two main hoses that got to the stat are £74 and £61. On GSF they are £25 and £30 but unknown make

Gates stuff is good. Lots of stuff us made in China but is good as companies like Gates go out and set things up with British quality standards but just using Chinese labour. 

It's stuff made by a Chinese manufacturer that you need to look carefully at but some of it is good stuff, some of it is a joke.

Possibly its ok but usually one reason to get it made in China and that;s cheaper, i've seen on a video a Gates kit and the casting 

for the Tensioner is nothing like the original.
