    Correct Coolant for 04 9-3?

    The chill air we’ve had this week has brought a warning about my coolant level. I checked this morning before starting the car, was surprised that it was orange, and saw that it’s maybe 1/2” beneath the “cool” line.

    When I buy coolant for this car, what do I need to make sure is on the label and what is not on the label?

    thank you!

    Options

    1. Something that is compatible with Dexcool, like Prestone Dexcool or Zerex Dexcool

    2. drain the coolant, flush it, put BMW coolant, drive a few days, flush it and refill with BMW coolant.
