    Radiator

    My radiator is leaking on my 2005 2.0tdi a3... audi wants 400 quid to replace it! Where can I get one for cheaper if I do it myself?

    Are all a3 reads the same?

    Cheers,
    Jonathan

    I've replaced one on a previous 2005 A3 2.0L TDI 140 DSG, £200 supplied and fitted.

    where was that from? Was it new or used? How much was the rad itself, as I can fit it myself probably!

    Genuine radiator, fitted for £30, was fitted by a local VW/Audi specialist in Keighley.
