    dont mean to sound obvious but battery, or as jojo says radiator, as there isnt anything on the passenger side of the bay which holds water apart from those two things?

    I'm thinking washer bottle now, 1.8T quatty is side mount I/C on driver side right? Only thing that holds water that side is washer fluid bottle.

    Not sure if the 1.8T Quat was any different to the S3 1.8T setup, but I was sure it had a small IC on each side by the fogs, washer bottle is on drivers side as in the coolant bottle, thats why I'm leaning towards the xenon headlight washer jet, has the coolant actually gone down or is it just the washer bottle thats gone empty, this would tell you almost instantly.

    Still awaiting pics to confirm, but obviously its a coolant pipe or coolant system container thats the issue at hand, still cant believe some pikeys have taken it & piping, unreal.

    Bad form mate thieving gits!!!!....

    If you had a Forge one from an S3 before, AH Fabrications do a similar FMIC for 250 (last I heard) but you would need to source the pipework... Check out the FMIC thread in the sticky...
