Indeed I do...........

Clearflow Radiators (just behing Morrisson's on the corner of Meynell Rd) quoted me £136 ("absolute max", so to speak) for my 2.0 Cloverleaf.

Give Colin a ring 01325 480780, good service, even better price and he's got a very nice FIAT 20V Coupe LE too and he had a HGT Bravo before that, so he's familiar with "the family".

Oh thanks a lot...:)

Update..
popped in to see and said he came recomended.
Was quoted a rough price, but asked to drop the alfa in so the rad could be measured up.
So going to take it in some afternoon this week.
I will keep you informed.

£136 all in, not just for the part.

I think that's quite reasonable.

It still is Wentane Motors parts dept, the bodyshop is also Wentanes but is called "Cleveland Body and Paint" for some reason.

That's the place! Scruffy little shed of a joint - but who cares if you get a decent discount :)

Justin at BMC actually did mine and it caost me £167 fitted - it took him about 3 hours to do, so not bad really.

The car drove a lot better for it, too.

Er sorry, yes indeed.
I now have under my bonnet a shiney black radiator with all its fins.
Fitted it from the top after removing the slam panel and moved it has he said a mili at a time in and out
Says that i should put a ltr of antifreeze in as mine is red and he has blue and did want mix the two.
Hes done a cracking job for £151 and as it was a recore its got 2 year warranty:)
