How much are you looking to spend and what is the plan/spec of the car?

When my original rad went I replaced it with one of these;

Ali rad is much bigger for not much difference in price and (in my experience) does a great job of keeping the car cool, never seen it go over about 30-40% of the temperature gauge, certainly never over halfway.

Alternatively here is an apparently 'original' one that has been re-cored

Alternatively you can try Martin at Caprigear and see if he has anything else in stock?

Definitely worth getting in touch with Martin (Caprigear on here) to see if he has one first then :)

Cheers
