Let me preface this by saying that my car has nearly 200,000mi. The other day the plastic connector broke off while driving on the freeway and dumped half the coolant causing the car to go into limp mode. After reading this thread, I bought an aluminum replacement for $20 and some BMW coolant, cut an inch of the existing hose (bit of a pain) and had it fixed in about an hour. Not much room, but I'm not complaining. It's probably simpler on my N52 than on an N54. Just wanted to thank you guys for the recommendation, seems better than another plastic part that's destined to fail again and saved me from rerouting the hose. If anything goes wrong I'll let you guys know..
