Bumble's Radiator was still Ok at five years and around 20 odd thousand miles.

I believe Cain’s Morgan (Wolf Performance) still has the factory radiator, 9 years old with 100,000 miles on the clock

I changed mine to the Sifab radiator just before the warranty expired.

The factory radiator on Stanley was replaced at 35,000 miles after 12 years.
It had started to weep slightly at the bottom seam.
It could have been repaired, but I fancied a shiny Mulfab aluminium replacement.

I think the most problematic radiators were from early 2000 to around 2009
Too brittle plastic that didn’t flex with the Mog

I think we have had several threads on this and someone will remember the dates of the troublesome ones

2005 was all metal. At least the Roadster. It changed soon after.

That’s odd, I wonder if it changed in late 2005 as Andy Chandlers 2005 Roadster 4 Seater had the plastic tank one which failed

Well thanks everyone I'll stop thinking about it. The Roadster replacement radiaror has architecture that Brunel would be proud of.
