[s-cars] Heater Core - Source for all metal version?

Given how long the oem plastic/aluminum one lasted, your greater 
concern should be the quality of the replacement, be it 
plastic/aluminum,  or brass & copper.

I replaced the radiator in my wife's former 200q20v avant with an 
"all metal" radiator made by Nissens instead of the plastic/aluminum oem Behr.

I had to chase the threads on the Nissens radiator because they were 
filled with paint overspray, and the paint started peeling off the 
radiator within a week of installation.  Not to mention some of the 
brazing on the endtanks looked iffy.

I would try to replace either the radiator or heater core with oem or 
at least a name brand/quality one, if possible not made in China...
