Are they the gloss black or the factory flat black color? Can you post pics?I've been running a set of Samco Sport hoses in black for a little over a year now. Been very happy with them. Price is a factor, especially when there are cheaper options out there. But you get what you pay for, and this is immediately apparent when you receive them. Quality of construction is very good, as are the looks. Don't think I would have been happy with anything less. I don't have unlimited resources, but I try to think carefully about my choices when maintaining my car, and this was one purchase I'm glad I made.
