Yeah I came across that supersession too.
I'm hoping it would still be order-able though.
Sometimes they have supersessions on paper but still stock/produce both numbers. I came across that many times over the years when working there.

Like you say, very strange the Additional Water Pump isn't obviously found too.
Makes the hose search all the more challenging

BMW technical have come back and said the hose is no longer available and suggested moving the aux pump to allow fitment of part ending 533 or to find a hose supplier and get a bespoke hose made????????

Wow that's quite a surprise.
I reckon BMW UK Parts Technical couldn't find it either (as the entire Water Pump page is missing from the Coupe catalogue) so said it's NLA

Either way, they're not going to help, which is a shame.

Easy for them to say 'move the pump' but as purists we like everything as original as possible.

How much different (shape wise) was 64212494833 Dave?

Don't know what size you're looking at, but Samco might be able to help:

'classic' matt black available. I use a lot of their generic hoses on the Mustang, Cobra etc. - they're very good, but not cheap.

Thanks Roger I will probably just use the original hose but good to know other options are available

Nah, classic black Samco is the right colour. The reason you wouldn't use it is because it's not got BMW numbers on it.
