How can an expansion tank cause excess pressure irrespective of quality? Your other parts were old and they failed. No mystery there.

Thats only for the pre 2003 325s unfortunately. Smolck you can try Bavarian auto recyclers for a used one. It is a gamble sure but they are very good with testing and offer some warranty.
