The quote seems extreme. Like the shop doesn't want to do the work.

Keep shopping. Use the phone to do your hunting. Then once you find an interested shop, visit in person with the radiator in hand.

Never know, maybe a shop employee is willing to do a bit of "government" work.

Hi All
That's a good deal
Remember all odd ball core's has to be custom made and that cost extra $$$$$$
Doing the exchange to CA $$$$ its a good deal
That would cost the same here in Canada

Cost me $95 Canadian to have my 650 rad cleaned and pressure tested ,they did paint it for me though.
Does the Cx500 have electric fan or a mechanical one? A good used one might be a less expensive option.
