Randy's right on this one. I was at a local dealer (Park Ave BMW in Maywood, NJ) last week to pick up a stock order and some antifreeze. The parts department (this is a BMW only dealership) stocks plenty of the Texaco (phosphate free) product and only of few gallons of the more expensive BMW labelled product. Apparently they are using the Texaco antifreeze on all of their service vehicles (with BMW's blessings). SD Steve D'Gerolamo c/o The Ultimate Garage, Emerson, NJ Tel 201-262-0412 Email....
