    I really like Rein parts and try to use them as much as possible...the price and quality can't be beat. But I did have an issue with the Rein high pressure steering hose roughly 3 years ago. It just did not fit properly for some reason, even though it was listed as the correct hose. I bought it from FCP and had to return it. Obviously others had the same issue for them to pull it. Maybe Rein will get it straightened out.

    There are few things more expensive than a cheap BMW...

    Bummer - I purchased a power steering kit for the E39 from FCP during the holiday clearance sale that came with Rein hoses. Haven't worked with them yet.

    Strange. Maybe Rein had a product revision with this hose? I'm curious to see what happens when I get some age and mileage on this part.

    This car is not a peach. It is a precision instrument, and will be used as such.
