[DML] Coolant bottle consensus

Hi all...  While I'm on my quest for a replacement coolant bottle:

What is the consensus on the metal coolant bottles when it comes to 
stainless-steel vs. aluminum?  I seem to recall posts about the 
stainless-steel ones causing "problems" with the coolant?  What would 
these problems be?  Or am I mistaken in my recollection...?  Or does it 
really matter?

I also was thinking of using a pressurized bottle with a level sensor; 
something from another car, but similar in size/shape/volume.  Somebody 
on the list a while back mentioned one from a late 1980's BMW would work 
as a replacement for the stock DeLorean coolant bottle.  Can anybody 
verify this with a specific BMW model number?  It would be a nice 
project to use this & add a level sensor light somewhere in the dash if 
possible -- and the price is right if I go to my local wrecker's.  I'm 
having a hard time wrapping my head around spending about $200 CDN 
(after shipping & exchange) just for a coolant bottle - even if it is 
all flashy-stainless-steel-looking, sitting in the engine bay where 
nobody will see it...
