    Also GSF do or did sell the matrix for the Corrado, but can't remember if that was a Valeo one or not.

    There's an old thread on here somewhere regarding the matrix, what options are available and if you can replace it in situ or not ?
    I'm sure there was a discussion on the Valeo matrix.
    I'll see if I can find that old thread.

    Had MK2 1.8 Scirocco Scarla 1998 to 2002
    had it lowered on original wheels,
    K&N air fitler and Janspeed exhaust system.

    Now have 94 M reg Corrado 2.0 16v since 2002 still got it, been off the road now since early 2015
    hoping to get it finished this year.

    Also have a 2015 Seat Ibiza TSI i-tech as my daily driver. Plus I'm on The SEAT Forum.

    Yeah I think the Valeo one is the winner,
    just found the other thread from 2016
    this goes into great detail including photos.
    Don't want any ponds in our footwells or people throwing bread at the ducks

    Stay away from Topran, especially for the heater matrix as you won't want to get in there again in a hurry! Had bad reports about Topran oil coolers too - Valeo and Hella are the best if you can find them.
