I need to replace the radiator on my '93 525i. A local BMW shop (not the dealer) recommends Nissens over Behr (which is OEM). He said Nissens are built better and last longer. Has anyone else heard this?
Thanks TECH! I also found out why Nissen (aftermarket made in Sweeden) is better than Behr (OEM). It's because Nissen uses 100% new plastic for the resevior tank while Behr uses recycled plastic. This explains why the plastic reseviors on the Behrs tend to leak, because they have weak points from using recycled plastic.
