Please show us your radiator when its out so we have some documentation on E46 radiator failure. I want to know where/how specifically these radiators fail. I know the E36 radiators fail at the neck where the upper hose attaches.
Im in Canada.

Well, I saw the cap was listed but didnt see the info on ability to use E30 cap to reduce pressure.

I wont hold till my rad breaks , been waiting to long and I'll just replace it but I'll upload some pics later of my friends '00 328 auto that just ruptured its rad a week ago so we have some documentation.
