Wow, this thread is ancient! As far as the E60 M5/E63 M6 oil coolers go, the replacement oem oil coolers are still manufactured in the same way the first units were. This means that the press fit connection on the cooler below where the oil lines connect will eventually leak in the same exact spot. This, as well as the performance benefits on track, are a few reasons to upgrade from the oem unit when it comes time for replacement.

I've already replaced 2 OEM units (due to immediate availability when I needed them) due to the weak OEM. Had I had the opportunity to plan it out, I would have gone RPI the first time.
