    Icon4 PRV XM / 605 Top Radiator Hose

    Anyone interested in sharing a parcel with me? I desperately need one, mine has been screwed with and oil damaged - it's on borrowed time.

    Part 1343G2 which is the MY95 onwards top hose. It pairs with the later radiator.

    Landed would be about $230 per hose if I buy two, give or take $5. I'm aiming for nil profit. That's about 2/3 the price of local dealers.

    If you don't know what this hose is, and just want to knock the price, I can give good as I get.

    Addo, I have seen somewhere over the years a manufactured top hose for an XM that had stainless steel pipe between the rubber elbows at each "end". Probably made with some other hoses off the shelf to get the curves etc.

    You may have seen it on my car? I have an arrangement of that sort; to do it properly with black silicone tubing (elbows and tees) and beaded couplers would be $150-ish off the top of my head.

    Too many joins for my comfort level, and coolant loss is one of two disasters I worry about (the other being alternator failure - hence my efforts in another thread). I could bring in two and one of the specialists would buy the other in a heartbeat, no haggling, but why not make the opportunity available here first?

    And while we're talking PRV RHS (Rocking Horse S***) I see Schlockauto are now offering Klarius centre pipes and cats for the XM/605. Very good prices.

    Bargain. These are very expensive to buy via the local franchise. I've changed mine fairly recently though.
    If you have an early XM, the later top hose is the only one now sold by the factory and the layout needs to be changes slightly to suit the earlier cars. Eventually, a cobbled together setup may be the only option. The hose in the RH corner is another cute item bound to cause problems in future.

    CTA carry some exhaust parts by Walker and the front muffler wasn't overly expensive even with about 50 Euro freight and a few other items in the bundle. The rear sections could be a different story re freight though. Don't trust their freight calculator. Ask.

    Likely purchase date has been pushed back four weeks with confirmation of blocked catalytic converter, there is only so much play money in the kitty. :/
