Yeah it wasn't too great. I'm wondering if it was down to that kink in the radiator pipe that was causing greatly restricted flow..

possibly, if you still have the radiators you could do a flow test and se how much time is needed for 1L water to flow through.

An excellent and comprehensive review as usual XMS. How good is the finish on the NexXxos?
