Any recommendations on grill size ?... too small would restrict the airflow, too big would be rather a pointless exercise....too many choices !
I was advised this week, on this Forum that a Scenic 2 Condensor was 50 inc Vat, from Leicester Radiators, Fit it myself, + 30 Re-gas locally. So even your Cheaper Quote doesn't sound so good.
Thanks for the thread, I shall be fitting an ally grid too.
