Coolant hose replacement Volvo C30 P1

Post by Rvolvos » Sun Jun 23, 2019 7:17 pm

Would like to replace preventive the coolant hoses on our 2011 C30 96k miles. Read multiple instances of failing coolant hoses.


What would be the best replacement option?

1) Original Volvo hoses from FCP euro Volvo Cooling System Kit (C30 S40 V50 C70) - Genuine Volvo KIT-P1CSKAUTO
2) Silicon hoses from ipdusa 139576 - IPD - Silicone Radiator Hose Kit - Blue - P1 Automatic Transmission

Do not like the spaghetti hose design with plastic sleeves which makes it harder to inspect. Any feedback would be appreciated.

FYI When I bought the car the coolant bottle was cracked 3 inches and could not hold more than 10 psi pressure.
