broken radiator overflow piece on 300SD

Is this the only solution to this broken overflow tube piece....mine has broken exactly the same way today as the others posted but I am wondering as to what size valve stem piece I would need and how durable of a repair this would be.

Are there any other solutions or does mercedes have a quick fix for this (I doubt it) or am I best looking at a new radiator. If a new radiator is what's needed, then do you recommend BEHR or the aftermarket (NISSENS) brand?

Has anyone tried any plumbing material such as copper fittings as a possible solution?
