        If it's an '09 model would it not be covered under warranty?

            I fixed one with JB Weld. It depends on size and location of hole. Drain it, take it off, blow it dry, and asses the damage. Could be piss easy, could be too far gone.

                  I took mine to Natrad in malaga, they clean around the holes, put a vaccum in it, suck in some resin, let it cure, pressure test, paint and there ya go, almost like new Think it cost about $50 from memory, dropped it off in the morning, had it back in the afternoon.

                      had a pretty similar experience from natrad in armadale. sounds like they are the ones to take your busted radiator to.
