McMaster Carr # 5515K1
I purchased the McMaster Carr stainless steel hose, and installed it, but it was very difficult to bend, and in the end, it showed in the rear view mirror. I then purchased the original Lotus hose, and installed it much more easily and quickly. I would prefer to replace the Lotus part every few years vs wrestling with the stainless part. We each have our own preferences, I guess.

It barely shows in the back glass but it matches with my black and silver nicely. Yes we all have different tastes lol

If you'd followed the link I posted you'd have found the flexible aircraft ducting that is very flexible and you won't need to replace.
