I went to the stealer to get me some cool blue, $19.50/gal.x2 Ouch.
Last time I bought it 2 years ago I think it was $12.00/gal.
On a side note, they only had diff oil in a 55 gal drum and would NOT recommend anything else to buy for an LSD, "sorry, you'll have to make an appointment with our service department."
Yeah, I'll get right on that.
Spent most of the afternoon waiting for a towtruck to come pick up my friend's DeLorean (just got it back from a frame off restoration in Houston) It threw a belt and was on the way to overheating a brand new engine. (Of course this happened while yours truly was driving it for the first time) Lost some coolant. My buddy wanted to use the BMW blue to top off his system, mixed with green!!! Horrors! Used water instead.
Damn flux capacitor...
the colant since you only deal with it a couple times in 4 years isnt an issue.
as for the diff you can use any synthetic in the right weight if its LSD or reg.
I have a delorian when they were promoting T-shirt I was thinkin of throwing on ebay.

Bought a gallon of blue coolant from a stealer in South Callifornia last week. $23!!!
I wish I can use the new Prestone extended life coolant. It claims to compatible with any cars. only $7/gal at Walmart.
I wish you Yanks would stop bitchin' about prices over there.
You have the cheapest prices of anywhere on the planet.
Would you rather pay $40.00 USD for a U.S. gallon of BMW blue coolant?... We do!
How about gas prices? What about paying $7.00 per gallon like the Brits do!

I bought some Lemforder blue coolant 6 months ago and paid AUD$16 for 1.5 liters.x3
Hepu makes a blue coolant and well. Its a lot less $$ than the BMW dealer. Check with your local euro parts suppliers.

Blue is just dyed by BMW respect. their OEM supplier to make it different looking from other stuff.
In the '80's there was a problem with some brands of green coolant so BMW 'created' their own. At that time most of the engines were still cast iron.
And in the U.S. even in later years.
ZEREX Anti-freeze G-05 or G-48 or pre-mixed 50/50, which is silicate and phosphate free and friendly with aluminum. ZEREX G-48 is BMW approved; ZEREX G-05, which is Mercedes Benz approved and other aluminum engine manufacturers. The orange 50/50, clear G-05 and blue G-48 are aluminum engine approved and basically same product other than color. WARNING: none of the Prestone products are aluminum friendly in spite of ads nor silicate and phophate free and both chemicals make sludge, which may clogged the cooling system of any car
I bought two gallons of the blue stuff from Bavauto.com for about $20 per gallon.
