The guy doesnt know what model its for, but if its cheap enough its worth having I thought, I asked him if I can collect in person as i only live 10 miles away, he said fine but I will charge £10 on top of whatever it sells for if you collect it. What a crook! :evil:

That`s because eBay don`t charge anything for postage costs hence cheap starting prices and silly postal charges.
I`d tell him to ram it mate, even if it works out cheap it`s the principle of the matter.

Doesn't look 16v. Top hose goes on vertically on mine and the grey one, not at 45deg like that.

Not at all, my uncle has asked me to sell his fiesta for him on ebay which meant him creating a account, which i set up for him and I will manage as he doesnt even know how to use a mouse!, the agreement on this was to let me use it if sell his car for him.

All fair and above board I think you will find!

That looks suspiciously like a BX TD rad. Even with his poor morals and extortionate postage, it's still a bargain.
this might be a signature

It does look like a turbo diesel rad - and I need on desperately - but don't know if he'll ship to Australia - have asked the question but no response yet. Also can't tell from photo what the extra bit is on the top hose mounting is - my TZD rad only has the 'L' piece for the hose - that one looks like it has another opening facing directly outward from the rad - any ideas on what that is?

Roscoe, a quick check on Parcel Force`s website (using estimated weight and dimensions) suggests:


Service Delivery Compensation Tracking Price
International Datapost From 4 days Up to £ 250 Tracked £87.30
International Standard From 7 days Up to £ 150 Not Tracked £64.40
International Economy From 42 days - Not Tracked £54


That would suggest that the 7 days untracked at £64.40 might be best option, depending how desperate you are to get it. I`ll try and have a snoop round later and see if I can find someone cheaper.
