Hi everybody,

I have a '96 328is with 90,000 on the clock and a slowly cracking radiator
neck. I'm going to replace the radiator for sure but I've got a few
questions before I do.

Does anyone have recommendations about what brand to buy?
-www.bimmerparts.com shows 3 different brands besides OEM. Nissen, Cooling
Systems & Flex, and Behr.

Does anyone know where I could get an all aluminum radiator? Is it worth it?
(I do drive hard occasionally and autox/track during the summers)

Do you recommend changing the hoses while I'm in there? (I just did the fan
clutch, water pump, thermostat, and belts.)

Thanks everyone!
