Genuine Porsche Oil Line Quality Issues ?

Recommended Posts

Just wondering if anyone has ordered genuine oil lines from Porsche recently and encountered any fitment issues?

I'm talking about the hard oil lines that run from the oil thermostat under the rear wing to the front oil cooler.

The first set that were delivered seemed to have been manufactured on a completely random jig !  The last tube bend towards the oil cooler was around 45 degrees off. There were no signs of visible damage or twisting, so appeared to have been made like that. These were written off by Porsche GB as "damaged".

The second set that were delivered this week are better but still do not fully match the profile of the original lines. Is there enough "springiness" in these brass lines to allow them to be clamped down, or should these be rejected too ?

These are labelled "Made in Germany" for what it's worth. Check the pics below.

 

First set compared with my original line:

Second set as delivered :
