Looks like the same type material, so probably the same problems......just not in an area where you notice.

Coming up with a list of different things to do at the same time that requires coolant replacement. So far:

Auxiliary fan switch

Coolant/Oil temperature sensor
http://www.ecstuning.com/BMW-E90-325...ensor/ES34326/

Oil housing gasket

Heat exchanger gasket

Radiator flush

Visual inspection of all hoses, clamps and general area and re-service the coolant with OEM coolant......water pump and t-stat replacement to...
Good info right there- I'll have to look into that heat exchanger gasket- sure looks like the same stuff that failed on my oil filter housing.
