Hi , I fitted a set of original rubber flexi hoses , and during the mot the mechanic noted some expansion of the hose under constant pressure.

I have now bought a stainless steel braided set from Paul Matty Sports Cars which I think also fit the Sprint. They cost ?40 for the set. I just need to fit them now.

Hope that helps , steve

I've just bought a set for my sprint direct from Goodridge. You can have different finishes, either black to look like the original or silver. No expansion under pressure.
all the best
