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...
