On the subject of hoses, I don't know of a set interval, but my 20 year old TD still has it's original hoses. My first Mercedes was a 1980 300SD. I bought that car when it was 20 yrs old. It to had it's original hoses, which I promptly replaced. When I removed them, the insides were perfect, not a thing wrong with them. Remember, hoses rot from the inside out. I think as long as the hoses don't have soft spots and they look good inside, keep them on.
