guys i was at peformance improvements and reading about Royal purples coolant system treatment, they both claim they can actually make the car run 30 degrees cooler... now it raises a question in my mind. im currently using redline water wetter and yes both names are very reputable, but which one , if anyone has tried them is the better of the two. or should i not even bother looking into this as they are probably the same thing different colour.

also is anyone running only water as a cooling agent? or the standard 50/50 mix.

i never understood these products...

do you just add a bottle of it to your radiator, on top of the 50/50 coolant/water mix?

is it safe? can it f#ck anything up?

is it at all useful in a 318 - or pointless?

Well these products are commonly used when someone does the fan delete mod. You mix 50/50 water and coolant like usual, but then add 2 bottle of water wetter...

^^just to clarify on what geoff said. Add the 2 bottles of watter wetter first, if your system is full of coolant, there wont be room for the water wetter:)

how long does it last? My coolant needs to be topped off, so it might be a good time to add this stuff.

is there any point in doing that in my 318, if i have my fan (not deleted)?

i would assume it lasts as long as the coolant does. its pretty neat stuff actually. but after talking to thinair, im thinking i may only run 30/70 coolant/water next time around. its risky for those who drive during the winter but for someone like me who drives the car only during the hot months i may be a bit more benificial. however 50/50 with a bottle or two of either redline or RP is more than sufficiant for most.


Benny. well a point not sure. but it cant hurt, i consider stuff like this to be preventitive maintainace for the car.

Benny - the risk in winter is doing 70/30 for water/coolant (as the water can freeze). having water wetter won't affect anything in winter.

330ci05 - if you ever have the car out in winter (or have it stored where it's not heated in the winter) then stick with 50/50 water/coolant (my $.02)

If your car isn't running hot, you don't need it. That simple.

Although it is more efficient having it in the cooling system then not :P
