I recently fitted a set of Uniroyal rallye 380 to my 2000, no complaints about them, they are the proper load index for our cars unlike the van tyres, I have not tried them in snow as yet so cannot comment on that but good in other conditions- and they came from oponeo, took about ten days to arrive...
Well it certainly looks feasible from the diagrams in the parts list although I have to say that I have never tried it myself, my car is power steering anyway and I always had the proper hose to hand, get the knife/saw out and give it a go if the non pas hose is of no use to you.
It is a little lower than original, any higher and the cap fouls the front panel flange, but I'll see how I go on when topping up, all my pipe work came from auto silicone hoses, they do a good range of stuff.

I had to buy two 90° elbows and a 180° pipe, also a 100mm long 32mm steel link pipe, the elbows are of the reducer type 32-28mm. The most dif...

Thanks mike, that is another good option for me , I'm sure I'll get it all connected up. The rad itself is still in it's packaging as I'm not ready to install it yet, the supplier said the outlets were 28mm and I think the originals might be a bit bigger but I'm just waiting for some tyres at the mo...
Thanks Ian, I will see what hoses I can get off the shelf instead of disturbing the stat housing and a steel link pipe seems a good idea to connect between the two. I have not started to install the rad yet as at the moment I'm busy cleaning and painting the wheels prior to getting some new tyres to...
