    Yea they look better and they are unlikely to sag like rubber ones can.
    And yea better flow but also depends what power your running cos may not notice alot at all on a standard car

    Valid points indeed!

    In your case Steve, it will just be to enhance the looks of the engine bay if anything.

    The only time it would be a requirement is if you uprated the turbo and the intercooler, in which case, the hard pipes would come with the kit.
