    You do have some problems dont you i feel for you though. In the past iv always got mine from radiator specialists as they are good quality and prices but obviously im not in your area im sure someone more experienced will advise as i havnt had to do mine yet.

    Define best place?

    GSF, TPS and a VAG dealer would be first port of call... in that order

    Assuming the S3 uses the same rad as the rest of the 20v turbo's then GSF list one for 46+vat

    I take it you mean the radiator iv not done one on these or thought about it but i would imagine you have to take the bumper off if im wrong then it will be easier as you would just do it from under the bonnet no need to put it on a lift or ramps. Hopefully someone whos done one on these will be able to tell you more.
