    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?

    washer bottle is on the drivers side of the bay?

    could it be something to do with the aircon? i know the pipes run along the front passenger side of the car

    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...

    Hope you get it sorted out. Tufftys idea is a good one, I might be tempted, problem is I just can't stop spending money on this damn car!!!
