lol :lol:

I'd be up for a group buy (assuming my car isn't written off, lol. Be a nice compliment to the new engine). Do RB get their hands dirty with such proletarian things as group buys? Anyone else interested?

No rush for me, as long as you know I'd be in for half carriage or whatever.
Hi Dave,

Dont mean to point this out, but those hoses would clearly be defined as a modification... :lol:

They do look nice though :D :D
Daves car is already modified..... the go faster red stripe saw to that! He's on the slippery slope now.... first a red stripe, then blue silicon hoses, next a 13b turbo engine swap and cut down road springs :D

I was thinking that might have been a dealer-fit option and therefore I was going to let him get away with it..... 8-)

Just browsing ebay usa and there seems to be a few sets for the $40-60 mark if that was more appealing. Other than that, Atkins sells the RB hoses for the same price but list a $25 shipping option to UK (2-4 weeks) or $55 for 5-6 days.

I used hose from viper performance in the midlands and just cut to size I needed, also noticed they do bespoke hoses with loads of options, even can add own branding. 8-)
