need new radiator
« on: 21:09, Sun 10 May 2009 »
alright guys im looking to get a new radiator and wondering what one to get full copper or the original one?

i also found this place down by me that sells new radiators i was cheeking the web site to see what bits they had in stock but looking at it and it doesn't make sense

http://www.eurocarparts.com/ecp/c/Renau ... /Radiators

if u look there are many different choices but only 2 prices 169.05 for one and 54.80 for the other but they both look the same is this just a mistake on there web site???? :oops:

thanks  :D

The EuroCarParts website seems a little muddled up since they have changed the layout. I noticed the same when i was pricing up driveshafts.

I'm guessing the cheaper one is without the oil cooler, like you would find on a normal R5 and the expensive one being correct for the turbo.

Anyway, 170 is far to much.

Best thing to do would be to call them.

But from past experiance they just go by what the computer tells them so you might need a chassis number to hand.

Don't go for the copper one, they tend to fall apart if you breathe near them.  Standard is more than up to the job, and will last a lot longer.

The price of them has shot up lately, unfortunately, due in part to the Pound/Euro exchange rate :(
Been around these cars for too damn long!

well aparently  EuroCarParts don't do them but the guy gave me the number of a place called "fast rads"

they said the would recondition the old one for $80 or i could get a new one for $120 they also pick it up from  my house and re-deliver it  for $7.50

is it worth getting the older one fixed or just get a new one ??

thanks for the help so far guys

Why not get one of these? also Ive seen them with the oil cooler built in if you didnt want a separate oil cooler.

to be fair im living on a serious budget at the moment, and to get a rad with seperated oil cooler is uber expensive right now,  ive brought all the bits i need (top rad hose thermostat and so on) every thing except the rad, hoping it might be alright  and then come the 1st if its still staying hot ill get a new rad its not pushing any serious bhp and its only running on about 5psi so i dont realy see the need right now either to get any thing to cleaver  :oops:

well perhaps if I order a new alloy rad you may be able to use my old one which is working fine.
