Hi all,

I'm actually considering this, looks like it has all the right bits, what are your collective thoughts?

I recently bought one at Mister-Auto website for less than 150 euros. More cheap and its made in Spain.

Did you order this radiator? How did it work out for you?

My first thought was to wonder if it would arrive in one piece if it shipped from China. It doesn't take much shipping abuse to tear up a radiator.

No I've not ordered it. Can't justify the price at the moment to have it as a spare. If I needed another I would probably go for it.

Hello,

Been a while since I last posted on here but just spotted this and I've recently just bought opne of these chinese rads off ebay. It arrived the other day very well packaged and intact but i've not fitted it yet.

I'll trial fit it at the weekend and let you know how it looks and get some pics up. Its definitely thicker (the ad does state it is double width) so it may need a bit of trimming here and there so we'll see how it goes. I was struggling to find a UK supplier for a standard rad at a decent price so I plumped for the Ebay one.
