Has anyone else fitted Forge Silicone hoses to a T5 130/174

I bought these hoses on the 13/10/2010 and fitted them quickly and one of the hoses up from the compressor is totally wrong

Contacted Forge but had limited response and i think we have both hit a brick wall

Has anyone had the same problem?

Very surprised at that, Forge are one of the best companies I know of to deal with if you have any issues with product, normally very quick to put things right or even refund if product is wrong??

Hmmm, thats interesting, I may be interested in a set of those - did they mention cost

The standard VW AXE hose couplings are a joke

Just be careful with SFS hoses, I had a lot of problems with them on one of my rally cars..... It cost me an engine in the end

whats the point of these hoses apart from looking pretty? I have the forge intercooler on mine but didn't see the need for these?

gets rid of the oem clip system which break under more than standard pressure and are expensive to replace based on the silicon type
