Agreed def not on standard passenger cars but if you do find a car with those hoses check them for condition and if they look OK grab them.Those hoses last like crazy and there is usually little wear if any on the used hoses.The only thing I don't like is that weird color.I think they have some kind of silicon construction or something.
