MY 2005 is 'safe' - at least as safe than it can be. That crap structure of the Valeo rad was changed after 10/2003 factory date. But like said, every water cooled system can contaminate oil if fractured.
Only 100% sure is air cooled heat exchanger. Some models has it (not 211), some owners has re-installed one.
