BMW Coolant

I've heard it recommended a few times. However I have no idea where to get my hands on it. Tips? You don't have to go to a BMW dealer, do you?

Suppose to keep the trucks cooler. If any of you get to this before I do please post your results. I hope to do it before the summer really sets in.

I bought it at the BMW dealer. I'm not sure where else you could get it...

FWIW I just called BMW about low coolant and they said I can top it off with Prestone All Season as long as it says it is good for an aluminum engine. Of course they would be more then willing to sell me a bottle of coolant next time I am in.

Alex,

The other stuff won't harm the engine or react with the BMW Stuff, but the BMW Stuff seems to have an added cooling property to it from my experience. I am not sure why, but every vehicle I have put it in runs noticeably cooler...
