The OEM version should last a long time and is what I would buy, but with FCP Euro I'd also be pretty confident buying any of those aftermarkets. They have a lifetime warranty on all their products and will replace whatever you buy if it fails again.
Shipping back to FCP isn't free.

Volvo on all plastic and rubber parts, or the OEM.

Bought a URO, lasted a few months before it turned cloudy.

Cooling system is a mother of all systems. Always go with Volvo parts and fluid to minimize.

I tried a Behr-Hella from FCP for my 2001 T5 and it lasted around 30,000kms or 2 years. It went dark yellow before cracking at the seam.

I left a bad review for the item on FCP's site today and it looks like I single-handedly locked up their review ratings......I can't see any reviews for any item from any of my devices....looks like I struck again :oops:
