Does anyone have a new heater matrix available? Cash waiting. Must be new, I have used spares. Cheers.

Going by the description that is a core only, not a complete matrix, ie it won't have the plastic bits, and I don't have the crimping tool or seals, so I think that one is a no go. Will email them to check.

have you tried GSF

also i think the ebay listing Tim showed is the complete Matrix
you could always give them a call,
although im sure that is more than GSF charged the last time i bought one,

Sutton Auto Factors are usually a good bet:

You could always try your luck at 74p or ring them to check the typo.

(mind you, the discs for my old 4x4 were £75 minimum EVERYWHERE else, i took my chances on a typo and received them for £8.83 plus post).

Looking at the diagram on the eBay advert, it does show the plastic bits. But if they can't even be arsed to respond I wouldn't be giving them any of my money unless desperate.

Anyone near enough to Sittingbourne to pop in and ask - they will probably be able to suggest a radiator re-builder as well.

On the diagram stolen from Nissens, yes the tanks are shown. But the description is very weird, repeatedly stating that it's a heater matrix radiator core, turns out the seller is far from having english as a primary language, but i've now had a response, it is complete with tanks, and a Valeo part (from memory Valeo where not the OEM for the matrix, i think it was SIAM or similar, and Valeo did the later spare parts, probably having bought SIAM).

Mr Lockwood also has a genuine original, though more costly than the ebay one!

Will have to see if this 74p one turns up!

Strangely enough the 74p one isn't in stock, and wont be in stock again. It does beg the question, why let me order it if there isn't stock. Stupid people.

My Lockwood is in the process of sorting me out, i have his current full price list (available by email request to Malcolm), though as he warned, he's put very few BX parts on it. If your looking for OEM parts for more recent models there are some fantastic savings to be made!
