Isn't this a line that can be duplicated by any hydro-shop?

Thanks for the link, I didn't notice this website before.

The hose can be reproduced but is tricky. It contains flow restrictors and large reduction in diameter. I've had it remade but now experiencing issues with vibration of the line following it. Hydraulic shop said it sometimes happens with those muffled lines and they cannot reproduce original 100%, not sure what is the reason.

See my thread about bleeding the system in the technical section for more details of the problem.

Unfortunately the owner of the store does not pick up the phone or answer his emails. I was not encouraged by the Google reviews, a lot of people are complaining about not receiving their orders, shipping time seems to be between 3 and 6 months, despite what it says in the store shipping terms...

On the other hand they have a shop on eBay which seems to have positive reviews...

Does anyone here have experience with Autostoria?

Just as a closeout of the topic for future readers, I ended up buying 60605589 directly from Alfa Romeo, weirdly it was still available as of year 2018. Price better not to discuss and best to forget.

Good news was that at the end the new hose solved the vibration problem. I do not recommend to have the hose reproduced due to the apparently difficult to reproduce or even swap out flow restrictors inside it (we don't have the exact technical requirements or blueprints to have it fabricated from scratch), although it may still be worth to give it a try if the price for reproduction is low enough to just go ahead and give it a shot.
