hahaha well maybe i've been the lucky one or they sent me the master set they had for copying it OR they just make too good copies. Don't think they'll burst or anything since theyre too firm and have many applies on too.
Well just wait and see.

You'll never guess what turned up today....




AWESOME!!

These must be copies.. but the quality appears to be spot on!

Only ordered them last Friday and they've turned up from China already. Very VERY impressed.

If there turning up as Samco hoses at that price i think i'll be ordering myself a few sets!  :D

The quality looks good from the pics, got to say i never had an issue with the cheaper China ones before, only thing i had to do was re-seal the bleed nipples but that was a 5 minute job. Other than that they did job well and held up perfectly

A few friends of mine have checked the pipes over tonight and they can't fault them! Compared them to genuine Samco hoses and they're exactly the same thickness and look the same, so they're either genuine or extremely good copies.

Get some bought!

Another friend of mine has just ordered a set to replace his dirty genuine Samcos!

I sent them a message to ask if they were real or copies, and they pretty much acknowledged they were copies by saying "if you want them with the samco logo, we can do it, if you want them without the samco logo, we can also do that" or something along those lines.

Going to order a set for my Clio 16v as well i think  8)

Nice one, put them on yesterday, WOW what a firm fit they are 9.999 times better than my previous random-scavenged from random cars-pipes :P

One thing only, one of the bleed nipples on the small pipe that goes from water pump to small degassing chamber is leaking. Wel not the bleed nipple itself, but rather the hole in the hose is cut too big and it leaves a small hole enough for dripping water from there.

I read some fellows that had similar issues with their bleed nipples and sorted them out. Would be very interested how they did it. I thought of puttting some sealant  among nipple and hoses both ways and let it  glue together.

Just for the info the problem i had with the leaking bleed nipple was perma fixed with some sealant underneath.  :mrgreen:  
Till now they're behaving just fine, no slips, no leaks, no issues at all.

My bleed nipples seemed fine - they were a bit loose though so I tightened them up good and proper and haven't seen any leaks yet. Very impressed with them, they look amazing in the bay.

I'm 99% sure if you order the black pipes you will also get samco branded. I've just ordered a new side mount intercooler and a set of custom boost pipes in black from them. I've asked for them to come with the samco logo as well  :D
