Hi all

Anyone have a good radiator for 1600 laser just mine has just give up the ghost prior to taking it for a mot. I know you can get new ones but they are silly money.

Cheers

Might be worth tracking down your local radiator place & get yours re-cored ;)

Re cores are not that much cheaper than a new Rad. Try Richard at Boston Motorcool, top guy and fair price.

Bite the bullet and get a new one - I got three quotes for a recore and two of them came in more than a new ally rad was, and the third was only £10 less

Four days later a shiny new ally rad arrived
