R5 1.6 Diesel had the bigger rad but you would need to fit an external oil cooler to use it.

If you want to keep standard size I wouldn't bother with the copper core stick with the OE rad or if you can afford the alloy go that route.

1. Alloy one
2. Valeo std. size.
3. R5 1.6D or Clio Diesel one (needs external oil cooler and FMIC cuz it is wider and need longer top radiator hose)
4. Cooper core one :roll:
