I think you've already reached close to "the bottom".  Shokan is 
either lying or is blissfully unaware of the  product specs.

Sure--my earlier post expressed my thoughts as to what you ought to 
do: firmly request reimbursement for labor--in addition to a refund. 
Just challenge them to an "autopsy" which can demonstrate whether or 
not their "OE" hose has the same innards as a proper (oem) Audi hose. 
All it will take is a few minutes with your old oem hose, their hose, 
a utility knife (and a witness). If the part they sell is a simple 
straight-through piece of hose, then they should agree to pay the 
_full_ cost for installing a new, proper hose.
