Not Happy Is this the most expensive hose ever

Underneath my 156 carrying out oil change and discovered one of the water hoses from oil filter housing to pipe leading up to heat exchanger manifold was kinked and badly worn.Not original part by the looks of it.The reason will become obvious!.Went to my local Alfa dealer in Swindon, being my first visit slightly dismayed to find I had to go to the Renault showroom for parts!!Part in stock. Cost 30 for preformed hose in roughly L shape total length approx 8cm.Still recovering!!!

Not an Alfa

No, not the most expensive.

The little 2 1/2" connecting hose that joins the thermostat housing to the rigid pipe that runs between the heads of a V6 Busso.... that repair cost 260.00....
