Red Boost Hose about to pop - any upgrade options?

So it looks like my red boost hose is about to go, it's sweating oil and now looks like it has a tear (I'll try and get some pictures later if it stops raining.....).

I've seen from the (numerous) other threads that the hose and seals failing is fairly common but everyone seems to fit the OEM pipe back on, is this the best option or are there aftermarket alternatives i.e. Samco?

Off to the garage in a minute to get it quoted for but thought I'd ask here as my two local BMW garages didn't even seem to know what part I was on about - said I had to bring it in. Took me to find the part number on one of the e90post threads just to get a part price!
