2011 e90 335i N55 Radiator

Hi, my e90 keeps on blowing radiators. Have replaced 3 in the past year and a half.
I'm in South Africa and no one here can help me. Had it even to a dealership and they can't help me or doesn't want to replace the radiator under warranty anymore. Please any help will be highly appreciated.

Are you sure you don't have a bad head gasket that is pressurizing the radiator? Radiators are especially week in e46 cars and some have gone with CSF or Mishimoto. They are worth a shot but I would check that you don't have. Compression leak that is pressuring it. Sorry to hear that. Ironically the e90 radiator is an improvement over e46 one.
