This is a hose that you'll need if you're retrofitting from the old-style E70 X5 radiator (if it has a drain plug, you have the old-style radiator) to the new-style. The old style had a post that connected to an extra branch on the hose that ran from the oil cooler to the water pump, and the new radiator does not. This hose simply blocks that branch of hose since it would have nowhere to go on the new radiator. Specifically regarding this piece, the endcap that blocks the old third hose doesn't look quite as solid as the Genuine BMW part, and no fasteners are included (it requires a hose clamp on each end). That's pretty standard, but just so you're aware - either buy new ones or make sure your OE clamps are good for reuse. I'll update this post if I run into any issues, but this looks like a quality piece at a nice savings over OEM. Only deducted one star for the endcap that perhaps doesn't look as tough/durable as the Genuine part.
