Slave cylinder hose...

I went to my FLAPS yesterday, and indeed there is no 12mm brake hose for any
import car. Except _maybe_ for the rear calipers of some MINI Cooper,
according to my contact there. It seems there is 2 caliper types for these
2002-07 cars, and one do use 12mm hoses. Maybe someone will stop at the MINI
dealer one day and confirm this route ?

Now, I've removed the crimps and the old hose, and it is obvious that
rebuilding is easy. After cleaning, the ends are perfect, not rusted at all
(might be stainless, hence the 88$) and any hydraulic shop will recreate one
