He was not okay with using regular fuel line at that pressure and neither was I. Also pick up some new clamps that fit the hose. The stock BMW clamps are stupid.
When I replaced my fuel filter, it looked like the hex heads on the clamp screws weren't symmetrical. Correct me if I'm wrong, but it looked like they need a special socket. When I got my filter, the parts guy threw in new hose clamps and a length of the correct hose for the fuel lines.
