I'm sure they look very pretty. I already posted my opinion that,
Benchmark Hydraulic rebuilds can be overpriced, compared to rebuild
prices that have been reported (other shops)--and even based on
another lister's (Dave Kavanagh) experience at the very same
(Benchmark) shop. FWIW, my last data point shows the dealer list
(list price!) for the high-pressure hose is $177-- and Carlsen Audi
discounted it down to $138--for a brand new , original oem hose--when
I bought one a few years ago. So, yes, you managed to save a few
bucks, but IMO the economics for rebuilds at Benchmark are, um,
questionable--or at least very erratic.
