My Ride: M3 HPF Stage 3
I bought one of these for my build. it is an impressive unit..massive! ..and well built.

Chris, Does anyone make after market braided oil lines for our cars. I have had low mileage hoses spring some pretty bad leaks. I expect this trend to continue. I would rather invest in something much superior so I dont spray oil all over my engine bay every time one fails.

I have never seen any for sale. They must be available?

I am not sure if I can even have some custom made. Are the fitting PROPRIETARY or are they readily available for a build? Aeroquip maybe.

I have all aftermarket brake and oil lines on my Honda Blackbird XX and they look and work great. Now I want something similar for the M3.

How many of you have had leakers? Is it hit and miss? I have been told its quite common and a problem for many BMW owners.
I dont like the OEM hose construction. It is a very weak design.

Not trying to jack the thread. It falls under connecting this engineering marvel (the HPF oil cooler) using sub standard OEM lines. I/we need much better connectors/oil and fluid lines.
