So I'm looking at IPDs website and am considering picking up the Blue Silicone Coolant Hose Set, Part#:26.0002, however $140 seems a bit steep to spend for hoses. (I understand these are performance hoses and I could get stock hoses much cheaper) Does anyone know of a place I can pick these up for cheaper? Or is $140 a good deal? I think they look sweet and I want them under my hood!

NM. Just ended up picking up some stock replacement hoses. I can't wait to get my package from IPD!

FWIW, a few weeks ago I was at IPD with the same dilemma...guys there told me "performance" wise I wouldn't see a difference. The oem replacement ones I got from them for my 855 were way thicker than stock anyway.

How easy is it to keep the blue clean from all the oil and grime?

Depending on how regular you do it, it should just wipe off.

Someone on TB has a 240 kit for about $100.
