Oil line varieties

Need a quick recommendation...

I'm going to replace both oil lines in the right rr fender: crossover line and the line from the tank to the external thermostat. When looking on PP, there are several varieties to choose from. Should I just ignore the others and pop for the OEM ones? In the case of these parts, is there any need to buy OEM or are the others identical?

Pay for what you get sometimes - I'd just pay a few extra bucks for the OEM/genuine stuffs. Also use a bunch of penetrant, especially around the t-stat fittings as those have a tendency to strip~
Good luck~

Be very carefull removing the lines at the T-stat as it can crack. We use an air chissle to shock the nut loose. Also we only use OEM lines as this is too important to skimp on.

Sounds great...OEM it is.

It's confusing on PP sometimes whereas parts are labeled as "OEM supplier". Can't help but wonder if the part is identical albeit the Porsche part number stuck on the bag. I'm used to Italian stuff, and this is the case on all too many items. You pay for the bag and the idea that the brand maintains and holds inventory.
