    Yes, he did use a really thin bead of RTV. I elected not to for a couple reasons: (1) BMW didn't so why should if I'm using an OE part, and (2) cleaning up RTV at the next change would be a true...

    Yup, the hose on the aftermarket kit was extremely difficult to get on. And, the metal clip wouldn’t engage properly.
