    They come up on that auction site. You could post a wanted ad in our Classifieds.

    278 quid from Abarth, there is a bosch equivalent which is common to the corsa, don't know if that extends to the red finish but a quick google around suggests there are savings to be made :thumb:

    whats wrong with a proper red abarth one anyway, less hassle than painting a nearly right one and you know it will fit

    just out of interest, why do you need it? did the bleed nipple break? :thumb:

    If you are struggling, try giving Brakes International a call.  I haven't used them for a while, but they used to sell decent quality recons.
