Found the part number through EPC which when looked up says discontinued. It's 7.5mm inside diameter hose. According to pelican parts 230-476-87-26 should work as a replacement. I'll let you know if it's correct

Also curious? Just drained my fuel tank and seemed like a good idea to replace them. I think they are 5/16" or 8mm but am not sure. If anyone could confirm that would be great!

Y/day I arranged for a transport coy to pick up a BMW I have restored for a client. The driver gets to put the car on the transport..I said to him "this will be the best drive you will have for 2 weeks!!."  [I was very enthusiastic about how the project had tubbed up....drives a treat }
mmmm he replied..."the job before this was to deliver a new $600K Maybach to the MB dealer !"   derr coff coff.!!

I tried ordering some 2 weeks ago from a dealer and they said nla.


Ecs and most parts sites have no idea if a part is nla until after you order.

ECS Tuning seems to have them for about $40 each. I was going to buy these in November but their website was acting up and I was worried about missing out so I bought from MBOEMparts for $60/ea. Can't remember if I bought fronts yet or not...

Rumb,

Thank you so much for this find - an Aladdin's cave as far as I am concerned -pricing also seems to be
very reasonable.   NOS so hopefully should be good quality and this side of the water, excellent.
Regards,

Bill
