Default Which racing radiator

Which brand is a better option for my car? a 2001 nbb, that I use as a street car.
Because I live in europe I've looked on ebay for a nice priced alu radiator that can be shipped to europe.

I've found:
Mishimoto racing radiator
ebay link

and
CXRacing radiator
ebay link

I would appreciate reaction which brand is a better quality.

I have the CX one and it works great. I dont have fans on it and have never seen temps over 185, but then again it only drives on the street when im testing for a track day so not much.

okay, thanks for your replies.
In a nutshell, I can go with the cheapest (product incl shipment)?

btw Ive mounted the ac fan parrallel with the stock fan, on a car without ac.

On ebay there are different items.
89-93
94-98
99-05 (must be the nb and nbb models)

Based on the adds, I don't see why they dont fit?

I have the CXRacing 99-05 in my MSM. Fits great EXCEPT if the car has oem (thick!) fans and a solid throttle body elbow. I used slim fans and made new top radiator brackets for extra space.

Search for the CX Racing radiator thread. I did pretty good installation notes on my '99. Seems a few people do have issues, most don't. I did several track days on mine before redesigning the entire cooling system. Needle never moved, and with a cool down lap, the fans weren't even running when I came into the pits. Not turbo yet, though.
