Yes, as you folks have pointed out the N51 radiator comes with a manganese oxide coating + sensor, and costs $615 at FCP Euro.

I'll call the local dealer and ask them if it's covered by the 150k/5y warranty since the N51 radiator is an emission-related component.

Otherwise, my only other option is to get radiator replaced but also do a complete cooling system overhaul (hoses, water pump, thermostat, exp tank,..), which I think is recommended at 100k miles. That way I can atleast save a bit on labor, rather than paying again for the overhaul. What do you folks think?
