Sadly yes. The parts in the cooling system (Water pump, Thermostat, Radiator, expansion tank, and hoses are bound to fail and leak.

The problem is if your radiator explodes, you have to ask why did it happen? My 540i's radiator was replaced a short time before I bought it, but blew up litterally the day after I buy it, only to later discover the thermostat made it go boom.

IMO as a way to avoid future headaches, thats why I suggest redoing the cooling system before a problem arises can be helpful.

Also, somehow when my 550i's expansion tank blew, it decided to take the Aux fan with it, not fun.
