Hi this is my first post. I did a search and cold not find any thing on this.
I want to replace all small diameter vacum lines but I'm disapointed with the durability of the OEM fabric braided lines.
I replaced a couple of lines in the past and could not find small enough aftrmarket clamps for the OEM VW line. I didn't look in to buying the VW clamps and crimp tool thinking I can get better aftermarket vacum lines.
Any one upgraded this on their car, where and what did you buy?
Sorry about the long rant, I'm a :crazy:

Hosetechniques.com sells silicone tubing by the foot. Vacuum lines are light enough duty that zip ties will suffice. I learned about them here and am not sorry with my choice.
