Can you please explain the need or wish for silicone hoses?
Is it that it looks better or do the gases / liquids circulate better?
I can understand the wish for looks but is there another reason.

Can withstand higher and lower tempertures, handle higher pressure and have much higher 'burst' threshholds.

It's not only to looks better, especially the turbo hoses, these silicone ones can hold/keep much higher pressure/boost under heat like partsmanager has mentioned. The OEM ones will expanse under heat at high pressure.
