Usually with cheap copies its not how they look its how they last.
Scratcher mate if you get a chance to have a look at them see if they're thinner than the real thing and when they've been on your mates car see how they fare with the heat.

These might be ok,  I contacted a company in Derbyshire who have started making hoses. There on ebay (seller id dphsport), the hoses are 4.5mm and look good, I messaged him to see if they would be ok to run from my turbo (oil drain), see below for his reply.....

Hi Dean, over time oil degrades the silicone, you should use a fluro silicone hose that has a liner in to protect the silicone. I'm afraid that i don't have any fluro material in at the moment.
