Thumbs down lynol radiator ?

so my radiator cracked and some of my buddys told me to get it fixed instead of replacing it. So i took the radiator out, and to the shop it went. They told me it was not fixable because the plastic sides (which sort of sounded like bs) so i called a few shops and they quoted me 80 - 100 dollars for a "lynol" part number # 2363 radiator. The radiators online that are oem are coming up for 30+ more dollars so how good of quality are "lynol" radiators i have never heard of that brand ?

Do Not waste your time or money trying to "repair/fix" a FAILED BMW cooling system component, you will end up paying more $$$.

Depending on the original mileage of your vehicle(cooling system), if the radiator cracked on you... You may be in for a couple of more cooling part failures soon - if they have not been replaced at the appropriate schedules. Just a heads up.
