Nice set of cooling hoses, and its true, all the cooling hoses are there. I got the black ones, and to be honest they are more dark grey than black, especially noticeable when put near something black. It is quite trucky to fit these as some of the pipe ends are in difficult places to access with a pair of pliers to release the clips.
A point to note is that the clips on the smaller standard pipes don't open enough to go around the new replacements, as the new hoses are slightly fatter. You will therefore need to get some new clips which are slightly bigger. Remember to get stainless steel or they will rust. Its worth getting them before starting on a Sunday afternoon and finding you can't clamp your new hoses on. The bigger pipes are OK as there is just enough expansion in the original clips to go over the pipes.
Its a shame at this price the clips were not provided, and that they are not blacker. I still rate them at 4* though as they are all a good shape, and feel nicely made.
