I'ld look them over closely - age takes it's toll on them too. They start getting hard & brittle. Factory had an "unsung" recommendation to "suggest to customers to replace all hoses evey 4 years" - I don't know if they say that anymore but it's something that shouldn't be overlooked.
Also, all of you guys should look hard at that top hose connection - it's a common problem when BMW switched to the plastic fitting. It's a stress point with the hose tugging on it and if you overheat (by some bad luck, it also developes internal stress cracks) Just an FYI...
