Replacing radiator needing flexi extenders?

As part of a shower room upgrade I am also changing a 25 year old radiator. Its modern equivelent has differently spaced valve centres to the old one which means a system drain down and adjustments to the pipe positioning ,or connecting with a small length flexible connector. Does anyone know of any reason why a flexible should not be used? It would save me a difficult job if it is possible. Your comments please members!

Replacing radiator needing flexi extenders?

What is the difference in spacing? If the new rad is shorter you can get valve extenders. I think that the main reason that a flexi should not be used is it will look bloody awful, and they are generally used for taps and may not take the higher temperatures of central heating.
