Best hose for Karcher K5 PW

I bought a K5 a year or so ago, and have found it a reasonably good PW, but the hose is a nightmare.

It takes ages to get off the reel and 'un-kink' it and then almost as long to get it back on at the end of the wash. It makes a quick wash almost impossible.

I have seen lots of positive comments about Qwashers and I notice that Karcher also do their own anti-kink hose.

Which would everyone recommend? Ideally, I'd like one that goes onto the existing reel on the K5, but the most important thing is that it is easy to get out and put away.

What sort of hose length are you after?

I'm not sure if the Karcher hose reel is upto the task of holding an aftermarket hose as they are generally weighty and not a fan of being rolled up.

About 10m would be fine.

I don't mind using a different reel, but I am keen on something that is easier to roll up than the standard one if possible. I find that my current one is always full of twists that either become kinks too easily or bash against the side of the car.

The way Karcher describe their Q10 product, it sounds as though it is what I am looking for, although some reviews on other sites seem to suggest it is not that much different to the original.
