Have you checked the dealer? A local radiator shop should be able to fab something up. Worst case scenario is that you buy a racing aluminum radiator.

There are a few parts recyclers on the left coast that have tons of 108/109 vehicles. Any of them should have a radiator for you. Does your current one leak from the seam? Mine did, and I was able to solder it myself, lasted about 1-2 years until I tried resoldering a pinhole leak and lost the seal job on it, then I was able to get a replacement (since at the time I had nowhere to redo it at my apartment). I would easily be able to resolder a leaky one now that I have my own place again. All you need is to clean the old paint off the seam extremely well, use a copious amount of flux and solder it until it's smooth! It takes a lot of solder.

i think you and i are in a similar boat. i have a very early 450se that needs a radiator and my only replacement option is the dealer and they want >$1000.00. i only PAID $1000.00 for my entire car! i'm going to have the bite the bullet soon and have been saving my pennies...i feel you pain.

Check E-bay

There was a brand new radiator for a 450 W108 in 'E-bay Stores' last month.
