Gonna be doing the thermostat sometime next week. I understand that the "Blue" BMW oem collant is the best, but what if you ran the green stuff before like i have? Is it safe to make the change (green to blue) at this point or just stick with the green?

The very best case is always to use the manufacturer fluids after all they make and warranty the car.

I would have given my 2 cents on this post earlier on but I didn't have a bottle on hand and couldn't remember the specifics on the coolant except that I know it by sight and it was available at Walmart for $13.95. Now that I'm doing my valley pan gasket project I had to go out and get 2 bottles and 2 bottles of distilled water... it's Zerex G-05 Coolant. *th-up*

I'm not twisting any ones arm here just telling you what I use.
