OM603 Radiator upgrade?

I had to seal off 2 radiator tubes with JB-Weld after a weak engine mount "nicked" my radiator. I plan to replace it before Summer. Is there an upgrade, say from a 400E or 500E that I might use?

BTW: OE Mercedes radiator f/87 300TD has two more cooling tubes (50, I think) than the exact OEM BEHR replacement!!!(48 if I remember correctly). It was only $20 price difference but more tubes if you buy it from the dealer!!!Has anyone counted tubes and thickness of 400E or 500E units? Would they match up in the 124 300D?

IIRC, the radiator in on the 87 603 is unique to this model.
