    We've got a set for craigs S4 and they seem fine. I'm sure there are a few people on here running them, and they come up on ebay quite often.

    We had to wait a bit for them to arrive but they did turn up.

    They fit fine, quality is very good for the money. Make sure you buy proper clamps if you are running more than stock boost would be my advice

    Byzan, do you mean Jubillee clips and if not which one pls?
    Aragorn, is this a fair price to pay for this set of hoses?

    Yeah, replace the Jubilee clips with proper bolt type clamps. Fit and forget then

    I run these, they're fine quality and thickness wise, some needed shortening a bit cos you run out of space for all the pipework, f-hose is a PITA but that's always gonna be the case, the lower ones are a bit fiddly too, but worth the small hassle as you save so much cash over Samco
