Time to change out the OEM Cooling system?

Recently, I have been having this issue with my OEM rubber radiator hoses. They are only about 2 years old to be honest. I replaced them when I got the car for peace of mind.

It seems as if they developed a small leak near where the upper rad hose meets the engine. Anyone know how this was caused? Too much heat, too much pressure? Bad hoses? Temporary fix for this?

I had this type of issue back when I owned my Civic, and replaced them with Samco silicone hoses. Unfortunately, they are a little too pricey for me, so I looked for alternative companies. Anyone ever use the Silicone hoses from Mishimoto?

(picture taken from here: http://www.mishimoto.com/bmw-e36-sil...ies-92-99.html)

^^ That's what I am looking at buying. Are they more difficult to install than regular OEM hoses? Any advice is appreciated.
