Radiator

The radiator in my 95 110 300tdi is sad and i would like to replace it with something more robust, i have not yet found anything other than standard replacements. Are there any suggestions?

Can't the local shop recoil it according to your specifications? Shouldn't cost too much.

As Jojo said, any decent radiator shop can re-core it with a four or five row core, or PWR on the Gold Coast make a shmick and $$$$ all aluminium HD version.
Actually, I think ADRAD list a full aluminium HD version in their performance catalogue too.

Is not a radiator that may be up to 16 years old pretty "robust"

I agree, people forget that parts have a limited lifespan, and when they break they automatically want to upgrade to something stronger.
OEM parts do the miles with tremendous performance, just save your money and replace with the same. Do you intend to keep your vehicle for another 16 years?

When you put it in those terms, it seems to be very much nitpicking to complain that a part has worn out after 16 years and however many hundreds of thousand of kms.

I'd say that was good value for money!
