I (and many others) have bought from demisterman - alternatively QRG sell them (but buy from demisterman) unless they've stopped making them?

Just remember the heater core in a Middlebridge is a lot smaller than the SE6 range. The heater is not Smiths. Its a replica. You will definately need your own unit to recore.
