Hi Steve,

I'd urge you to resist replacing things just because they're old. All the radiators are very reliable and efficient so there's no need for "uprating". Mine will soon celebrate it's 23rd birthday!

Spend your time tracing your coolant leak, making sure it's not from the expansion tank cap due to flattened 'O' ring seals or a cooling system fault.
