Help identifying this radiator

Here's a wee challenge for you. My mate has this radiator in his MK and he can't identify it to replace it (i know... just fit a different one ive tried that)

I thought it might be a bike rad giving that the inlet/outlet are 25mm?

The car was built 2003 if thats any help

It's not a Polo rad.

If there's a GSF Car Parts close by you might take it in there and see if they recognise it or have a similar size/shape one.

Not familiar with that website - does it let you find a comparable alternative?

MK did favour the micro radiator I remember them recommending it during my build on 2004..

Not the same but roughly the same size is a Porsche Boxster Rad. Usually around 60.00 on the bay. Would need a bit of re-plumbing though.

Thanks lads. My mate was just being lazy wanting a straight swap. The micra rad seems to be very rare these days.
