From what I can summarize, the cooling system can fail anywhere, but, the most common or canonical crack appears to be (from this thread) in both the large and small plastic "necks" as shown in the photo below (is this correct)?

PS: To post the photo, you shrink it to 640x480, upload it and then put an IMG tag around the link that bimmerfest gives you for the uploaded photo.
