Hi Marvin, Your hoses are a dream compared to OE. I was tempted to try the splice kit (NA anymore) but after speaking to you I trashed that idea. Good thing. After removing the original hose, the deteriation through out was amazing. The customer I did this work for was a first timer to me. He has become a very good and valuable customer (and freind) since I installed your upgraded hoses. Also; your tech support was a major plus.

I was impressed that the new hydraulic hoses were delivered within two days of ordering, just in time for a weekend project. The quality of the hoses and couplings were much better than the factory installed ones and fit perfectly! I've used the convertible far more since the replacement was done and without worry of any ruptures. A +++++

Last month I experienced the green shower. I read up on the hose installation, and contacted Marvin. Bought the hoses and received them two days later. They were clearly better material ,and the fittings were swaged on properly as opposed to Jaguar's inferior design. All good on the components... Installation; I was hesitant to dive into this alone, so my friend Steve agreed to help. He's a retired army helicopter mechanic, so we tore the Jag's interior apart. Seven hours and two phone calls to Marvin later, we were operational. We probably could have done it in lesser time, but we were having a few beers as we went along. Saved a bunch of ca$h doing it ourselves. My recommendation is to have someone helping you during the retrofit. In spite of my fears, it all worked out 100%.

I just got the green shower and decided to replace the hoses myself. I bought the upgraded hoses from mjohn2001 (aka Marvin). These hoses look much better than the OEM. Slightly larger diameter but fit in all clips just fine. The hardware on the ends of the hoses is much better. The best thing, though, is Marvin is SUPER responsive and helpful. He mailed the hoses fast, then provided links to detailed replacement instructions and even gave free technical advice by text and phone. I did the job in one day and the top works great again.

Marvin, Wanted to update you on the hydraulic hoses you sent for my wife's ‘03 jaguar XK8 convertible. They fit without any problems and appear to be of superior quality to the OEM hoses. It took about 7 hours to install the new hoses and route them correctly under the carpet and rear seat. I found a couple of good web sites that described the installation (unfortunately, the OEM hoses fail at an alarming rate right above the rear view mirror where the convertible top locks down). By doing the repair myself I saved about $1000 from what the local Jag dealer wanted to charge.

I have a 2000 xk8 conv , I got a set of these hoses from Mr. Johnson and had my repair man install them. Marvin said they were the best ones I could get, better than oem Jaguar part HJB8256AB. The best thing I can say they work fine with no problems and will last longer than any you get from dealer. Funny part is my repair man tried keep the hoses for his 99 jaguar xk8.
Marvin, We put the new lines in about 4 months ago and it seems to work great much better than the oem hoses (jaguar part hjb8256ab). Thanks, Gregg.
