Got a stone through my air con condensor and going to replace it and still on the original radiator even at 110k miles so when the front is off I may as well replace it while doing the condensor.
Is it a standard E46 330 rad and condensor or is there any thing I can upgrade to as decided to invest some over the next while and keep #108 for a long time

the radiators tend to bow at the bottom when they are ripe! or the top. You can buy rads with ali ends instead of plastic. Cheap ones like EIS from euros leak from the word go. Get behr or valeo

Its a standard 330i radiator. Header tanks are a famous victim also to splitting....while your there!
