However, when it comes to this radiator; I will say that it appears better in every way to the original. I have not run one personally, but it is a quality part. The Genuine ones have been coming brush painted, already rusting. Personally I wouldn't run one.

Fair enough and exactly what I thought when it comes to proline.

The last few Genuine radiators I have received through Land Rover have been junk. They are brush painted and most come in damaged. In Richmond, we had a big chunk of solder come out of one.

Mine came brush painted. I bought it maybe three years ago. Otherwise its been good. How is this acceptable for the manufacturer to even make them this way?

Right? It's hard enough to get a single straight body panel from Rover, their quality control is pretty bad.

Apples and oranges. Body panels aren't critical to the reliability of the car, a radiator is the life support system of the engine.

Overall install went well. Oil cooler fittings were fine. Rad came with a brass fill plug, which is nice. Engine temps before and after exactly the same.

Too lazy to get it right now. It's fine but without the stock stickers it looks a little odd.

I saved the stock rad. In case someone has an economic source to have one recored and wants to keep the pure stock look, stickers and all.
