Question Radiator


In the event of replacement. Could there be an underlying issue such as a fouled/cracked/blown head gasket or gaskets?

I would like to send a picture of the crack. The radiator just popped after experiencing usual fluctuation of the thermostat. I never had this problem before.... I was told it could be a brokem thermostat, etc.

I'm assured that I may not have a gasket issue, because the vehicle is not smoking, nor emitting any sweet odors...

Am I missing something that could cost me in the future?

The radiator is a BEHR, plastic. Should I get a metal/steel radiator instead?

Sorry about all the ridiculous questions; I'm new to the BMW world...and want to do the right thing for my new baby.
