You can buy extended radiator tails to fit situations like this. They aren't cheap but can save a lot of hassle reworking your pipework.

Thank you acsimpson for your advice ,but as nothing is easy with my wife ,she came home with a new radiator as last posted , but the pipes feed into the bottom and not the sides ,so i dont know if i can get extensions with a bend or would i be able to use compression joints with 90 * bend along with the extensions previously mentioned. Once again any help would be great Thank you.
