The hose I got right from a local BMW dealership. The metal bracket clicked in nice and securely yesterday, and the car ran great. Today thats where the bubbles and steam was emerging from. I plan to replace everything that I have fixed with JB weld over Christamas break, but the reason JB is in use right now is because my campus literally kicks everyone out for christmas break and fines you for any extra time there past 6pm tomorrow, so I'm doing the best I can to make my car driveable to get home. I've took the hose off, and rammed in on the ET nice and hard and securely, and reclipped that metal bracket around it. Just gotta wait for the JB to cure a little longer over the pin hole in the bleeder screw and then I'll add the coolant I lost, re-bleed, and hopefully be able to make it home tomorrow.
