Did anyone ever find a source for 7/16" oil hose? I've used the Napa 1/2" and it's okay but it doesn't fit snug like it should. I found some silicone hose in Australia...

Per this writeup I used BMW part number 32-41-1-131-524 from Pelican and it has worked great...was $17 for 1 meter's worth and I think was Continental brand. I used about half a meter and fit seemed perfect. Pelican says the hose is off the E28.

Thank you that looks very promising. Iirc the 1/2" is just a bit too big so that may be a lot better. 1/2" would be 12.7mm I think and also the German hose is gonna be tight on a 12mm fitting.

I started this DIY but will finish this week. I got the reservoir out and one of the hoses cut off (I think I cut the hose off the banjo connector, not realizing it was the hose with the banjo connector because I didn't see the bolt head). I guess I will unbolt the banjo connector off and will attempt to pull the hose off the crimp connection on the other hose before attempting to cut the connection off. I had a hard time finding this connection though since my lines are filthy dirty... Wish me luck.

Thanks for the DIY. I have a E36 non-M3 and didn't realize my pump was a little different than the E36 M3. I got the hose with the banjo bolt as mentioned in the DIY, but I ended up not needing it. The intake manifold line on my E36 328i sedan has no banjo fitting. Bummer!
