Hey guys anyone know where I can get a mk1 gti radiator. I bought a mk2/3 one off ebay quality is really good but i dont think i can get it to fit.

Can you still get new cores for them?

Hole locations should be similar. Might be worth getting someone one modify the ports if nedded rather than source a legit one. Otherwise any decent radiator shop should be able to make one for you as long as you have the original.

Yeah hole locations and hoses are the same on the mk2/3 but looks to be too high.
Ill double check today. But looks like its 30mm to 50mm different.

I bought this one. Have used it yet. But the quality looks quite good.

Doesnt directly fit mk1 but can be made to fit. Also looks like pain to fit a fan

Cheers...The ebay aluminium ones are so cheap..I got quoted for my Cino over $200 from a radiator workshop for a "normal one"..(plastic).. and that was just the part..
..but a just got a 94 gti..( pretty happy about that!!:)..the core looks a bit damaged but is still doing its job.
There are ebay ones with fan for a bit over $100..and it would look pretty nice in the engine bay...if they dont fail.
