@smolck- relax.my statement was more of stating my experience and asking you what yours was that's all .Hope your not upset...I understand all of this is drawn on experience yours and others, but I hope you understand that in MY field , our practice is Based on EVIDENCE BASED medicine not on EXPERIENCE. I wish you understand why I just can't accept what articles and people have to say with out comparative studies on multiple subjects(in this case cars) long term over a period of years with controlled variables.
I do work on my own cars for fun and have less experience than most of you.
I use OEm parts from Bavuto and FCP .
I am running on my (#2) second set of coolant parts when usually after the expansion tank cracks. I don't overhaul the cooling system every 70k miles.
I would also like to point out to the OP that the brands used other than bmw albeit a different color- are amine phosphate silicate and nitrite free...as is the the case with bmw coolant ,mixed strictly with distilled water.This is key- IMHO

Merry Christmas !!Peace!
