I should be looking for a set shortly.
Not sure if to choose Samco-blue at £495 or Simon-Auto-black at £100 less?
Sort of prefer black a bit, but did they come with clips too?


You can have the Samco in Black for the same price but realistic lead time is currently 12 weeks / 3 months from receipt of payment. Simon quality and fit nothing like as good as Samco but you get what you pay for. Neither include clips. Samco have clip kits but they aren’t particularly cheap. So if you fancy a winter project best order now!

Well so far not happy at all with the Simon hoses @ £400.

I have had to cut down 6 of the 6 fitted, all three sides of the water pump and all 3 down at the oil cooler, having not done this before perhaps this is just how these things are supplied but....

My main gripe is that the lower hose to the water cooler 061123 is no way the correct diameter, it’s way too small to slide over.
It seems the lower two pipes on the oil cooler are the same 061123-24. One fitted just, it had a 2016 manufacturing date but the 2014 manufacturing date hose has no chance at all.

I’ve emailed Simon for a correct replacement I’ll let you know.

As I said above, Samco fit fine out of the box but the current lead time is unacceptable to most.

Andreas at Simon has emailed back straight away which is encouraging, just sending in photos in just now.

I have realised that it was the 2014 that fitted, the 2016 one didn’t, not the other way around
