Another hose question

Spotted this hose on flea bay, the seller has a few neg feedbacks but I have actually contacted someone who has bought said hose(im awaiting a reply),
It claims to be Samco but never in a million years will it be,
SUBARU GDA/B J20 STI INDUCTION INTAKE PIPE VERS 7-8 on eBay (end time 06-Dec-09 08:29:29 GMT)

So, too cheap is too dangerous? take a gamble and hope on Paypal sorting it out ? Or am I just a half empty kind of guy now ?

Re: Another hose question

If it were me I'd give this one a miss. Looks ike 55 quid for something of uncertain origin/quality, and the seller can't even spell blue ffs.

But he also implies on the page they are from "Cool Nuts Racing", and the Japanese ad at the bottom;


comes from this site; Cool Nuts ラジエターホース So no way they are Samco hoses. He has got hold of a load of hoses from somewhere and re-labelled/re-boxed them for the benefit of anyone looking for an apparent bargain, without actually saying anything of their origin. I also doubt he has anything to do with "Cool Nuts" as their e-mail address is not @hotmail like the seller, it is @cool-nuts.com.

I guess it's up to you wether you want to take a chance on them, but at least now you know they are not Samco. If it Cool Nuts stuff though (of which I am not convinced) then at least you now they aren't cheap chinese copies.

Re: Another hose question
