BX Turbo Diesel radiators and Silicon hose kits - available now!

Post by KevR »

Already posted on the original thread, but thought I'd re-post here as more likely to be seen.

Right then, I've now got somewhere between 1500 and 2000 miles on the new rad and hoses with no problems at all, including monday morning M25 gridlock, heavily loaded motorway, towing, and carting lots of building materials around (all of that with non-functioning fans...).
And I've just had price info from the factory, so orders are open.
They're going to do me a special price for the first batch, before they later go on Ebay etc for a bit more (the GTi rads from the same firm are £189 at the moment, normally £199, I expect these will be about the same). So I'll be collecting orders (and dosh) in the next few days before passing them on.So for those who've expressed an interest, please don't hang about as I'd like to get the order sorted out ASAP. PM me to confirm interest along with full name and address, plus mobile and/or daytime phone number, and I'll reply with Paypal or bank details, whichever you prefer.

These are hand-made, all-aluminium, tig-welded radiators with a 50mm core for greater cooling capacity.

Prices including shipping to the UK direct from the factory to your address are:

Radiator: £155.
Hose kit (top, bottom and filter cooler hoses): £60. Choice of colours: red, blue or black.
Radiator and hoses shipped together: £195

Please note this doesn't include any import duty. I don't think there'll be any to pay within the UK, but when I was sent the first two in France I got stung for 50 euros duty on the whole lot. Quite a common occurrence over here... (

I would buy one if the radiator on J119 hadn't been replaced this year already!

Kev I want a radiator and the pipework, but until I get paid I can't buy it! If you can wait until November that's me in.
And I want red :)

Kev. Change in plan: The BX is up for sale as I really have to gather resources for a new project next year. And it isn't BX-shaped I'm sorry to say :( As I've only got storage space for one car something has to give.

Sorry! I know it seems odd, but these things get hold of one quite quickly.... I promise, it's not just a rather extreme way of getting out of buying a rad and the hoses!

Great work Kev. Are they intending to complete the hose set up though? The three behind the engine would be a cracking bonus, although they'll need protection for the turbo heat - which is possibly why they don't make them? I'd be down for a set of hoses if they did! I'm good for rads although they do look the dogs danglies and I would if I needed one

The long hoses are a possibility for the future, but we need to sell a load of these ones first to show it's worth doing more!
