Proline PLE130 Radiator vs ESR3685 Radiator

I need to replace my original Land Rover ESR3685 radiator on my 97 NAS D90 and see that ProLine has a less expensive option the PLE130 that I can get as an alternative.

Anyone have any experience with the PLE130 as a replacement. On fence as whether should replace with the original ESR3685 or whether the ProLine is a better product. Also need top and bottom hoses. Any insight would be much appreciated.

Ian

Why not get a PLL885 - Rovers North - Classic Land Rover Parts then add an external oil cooler?

Wrong configuration for a NAS

I replaced my OE 97 NAS with the RN Proline about a year ago. 10-15k miles ago and no problems.
