Changed mine when I studded the truck, didn't want hoses to catch me up, that was at 6 years and 108k.
The E99 has the original hoses and all of them will get replaced this spring. 16+ year old hoses are not confidence inspiring.
I must say, rubber hoses do seem to hold up vastly better than they did 20-30 years ago, I can remember changing heater hoses on 5.0L Mustangs and countless other cars from the 1980s that were leaking at 5-6 years old.
Sent by my right thumb!
