On my e39 you can see the bottom of the hose where it attaches to the dipstick with a flashlight so it's easy to keep an eye on. I was surprised when the other end of the hose was split just as bad. It could be bad luck but I won't take the chance on URO again.

Plus, the fitting on the OEM part snapped on the CCV much better.
