I got quoted £180/220 + vat for my recore, so £300 for the one you want does not seem a lot more.

It's really low quality. Arrived damaged so they refunded me. Probably would have returned it if not as its below the standard I want on my car.

I have an the original rad from the car that I will get recored. Definitely the best option in my opinion unless you are going to splash the cash for a £300 Koyo.


Same thing happened to me when I bought a cheap rad before. Won't buy again.

I got a 3 row one off eBay, has the lower union for the matrix return and was really happy with the quality - it's survived cooling the 13BT with no problems at all. Can't remember the seller though so not very helpful. :idea:
