Coolant and power steering fluids

Hey guys I have a bunch of MB coolant and power steering fluid sitting around. Would these fluids work on our cars? The PS fluid says CHF 11S on the can and the coolant is blue. Here's a pic. Thanks in advance

I'm sure you could use both. Personally, I'd be OK with using the PS fluid, but not the coolant. For peace of mind, I'd rather just stick with BMW's formula (they are prob the same, but who knows)

+1, the PS Fluid should be the same especially given the fact that both says CHF 11S. But as W/// mentioned, i'll personally go for OEM coolant instead just in case something is different (and i am sure it is somehow different).

On a side note, anyone tried using Motul Mocool or RedLine Water Wetter in the BMW cooling system? I used both in other vehicles and have seen some benefits, not huge, but would be nice to help keep our engine temperatures as low as possible especially during hot summer/track days!
