      As some of you know the Evoms CAI has a tendency to rub on a few coolant lines. I finally got around to notching out a spot so the lines will be run free..they are still fine to keep on, but for my own security I have been considering replacing them. I am also in the process of cleaning up my bay to make my car show worthy so I then thought about some colored coolant lines. I found them here:

      I thought it was a bit strange though that I have never read of anyone else putting these on..considering the limited options of aftermarket parts and I thought atleast someone would have tried them out.

      Thoughts?

      Yeah they're a bit pricey, though I talked to a coworker who said Samco hoses are pretty pricey as well and said for a 18pc kit that it's understandable.

      My only concern is if it is truly for our car. Too many times have companies tried offering items for our MKV R because they assume it is the same as other makes/models.

      Im going to email them and inquire about a small group buy.

      I'm definitly following this. I have seen this kit before on the english market on ebay. Never inquired on it. Its good money which could be spent else where on the car but depending on how low the group buy brings it i would def rock the blue.

      This would look good next to my blue Forge intake but this would be money better spent for other things especially with the current exchange rates.
