hi there the item you have recieved is OEM and is made of brass tank and copper core which has better cooling properties than aluminum. hence the core does not need to be so thick because of this. We do apologise that it is not mentioned in the listing. You do get a years guarantee with the product and from our experience these radiators are better than the standard aluminum ones with plastic tanks which tend to start melting after a while at change of weather. We do not mind taking the radiator back if you are still not satisfied. Thanks
Polly he did mention it has warranty with the rad so if it does melt in few days or months claim a refund backI got a reply from the ebay seller who sent the wrong radiator
can someone verify if his claims are true? that the brass tank, copper core and black paint will compensate for the thinner core and could theoretically perform equally or better than the current 26mm Alu rad for my turbo in trackday application?
good write up Paul!
I really dont buy that plastic melting on ali rads mate, iv given mine some abuse over the years and never had any problem!

Other way is return it back and say u ain't paying the few quids as it's wrong item and not same as they told u on eBay and go for the one u had before that way u know it's ok for track days and the right oneno just 1yr guarantee.
so I either use the £50 rad hoping it'll cope with the turbo at summer,
or return it (cos technically this ebay item is "not as described") and possibly lost few quid from return postage and reorder another proper rad like mine for £70 that IS guaranteed to work.
Hi, I purchased the item that had a description and picture which matched the OEM damaged one on my car and I also requested an express delivery because it needed fixing that weekend.
As the received radiator is constructed differently to the one pictured, its uncertain to perform the same as the original one with my cars setup, may affect the cars value and the cooling systems corrosion resistance because the engine and coolant was designed for aluminium.
I would like to return the radiator with a full refund including original and return postage.
once item is received refund will be processed. Refund on postage is not refundable in any case as the service has been provided and paid for Kind regards
Here's what you have to do next:
Please allow a few days for the seller to respond to your case in the eBay Resolution Centre.
If the seller doesn't respond or if you aren't satisfied with the seller's response to your request by 25 Jan, 2014, please let us know. On that date, you can escalate your case to eBay Customer Support. A customer support agent will then review your case and get back to you with a decision within 48 hours.
What you should know:
If we don't hear from you by 16 Feb, 2014, we'll assume that things have been resolved, and your case will be closed. Note that once a case is closed, you won't be eligible for a refund through eBay Money Back Guarantee for the item.
Hi, after receiving this item which is not as described, I don't see why I should end up paying for both delivery and return postage totalling up to the cost of the item itself while you receive the item back at no extra cost.
I expect to be reimbursed the original purchase cost, original postage and return postage for sending me the wrong item and wasting my time and money
those oil control rings have finally bedded in then paul i had a couple of builds recently that still smoked, but when i selected the 4 most worn o/c rings and fitted them to the lower position (and the best 4 in the upper position) the smoking stopped
Did you Pay by paypal , because i seem to remember someone saying if you open up a case there instead they'll hold back the money which generally gets the outcome you want from the buyer ? Or i may have that totally wrong in which case , ignore me
What pads are you using? Ebc blacks? They work well for me, but dont last long.
Grooved / drilled discs = slight weight saving and eating up pads MUCH quicker, not real performance benefit.
