I also recommend going easy on making it so tight. Just screw it in gently till it stops.
If I'm remembering correctly the lower hose should click into the expansion tank. There's a wire clip that snaps into the tank. If the snap doesn't engage a leak is inevitable.
Will be picking one of these up first and foremost upon returning home. Thanks for the advice, I will be careful around it. However, I got a new OEM hose from BMW, shouldn't it have come with an O-ring of some sort? Mine did not. Hoping that isn't the reason for the leak
