It will. FACT..
Betray, how many KMs do you have? It WILL happen anywhere from 45-120kKMs
Things to look for:
ANY white residue/spray.
That light which comes on is the possible death throes of the rad. The light may come on for who knows what (mine) and won't be the rad. but check really soon.
If you are looking for a aluminum rad for the car search BFC E38 they are still working on prototypes. They are available for "lesser;-)" BMWs but not for us yet. You will still need the expansion tank too. If you are nearing 100k KMs then buy a new rad and expansion tank. Better to shop around and have it on hand.
