Cool new product I just ordered. Lifetime engine coolant.

I just thought I would share. It seems like really useful stuff and I had to top my collant off anyways so I thought I might aswell get it.

Confirmed that this stuff works with the BMW cooling system.

Nothing new there. The Evans stuff is proven and does a great job. Definitely pricey but should be worth it in the end.

Are you going to do the fluid change? If so, it would be nice to take some pictures and make it a DYI.

I have been using Evans polypropylene glycol coolant for over ten years. It is waterless, so you do a complete coolant flush with Evans flush or just cheaper Sierra waterless coolant. Then you fill with Evans. You do not use Evans to "top off" your stock ethylene glycol coolant because your stock coolant is approximately 50/50 water and coolant. The Evans loses all its beneficial properties if mixed with water.

It seems cool but further reading noticed that it's not recommended for daily driver or cold weather operation though: http://www.evanscooling.com/products/coolants/npg-2/

I spoke to R/D and they told me that the NPG-2 is not right product. They current product that will withstand temperatures upto -40C is called NPG+C (for now, they will change the name to NPG High Performance) However, there are viscosity issues below -10C. The fluid will work (upto -40) but needs warming up before driving hard. I think it is common sense, even with a water mixture the car should be warmed up a bit longer in the winter. On their website there is a phone number to the PA office. There is a gentleman called Dave Wright ... very informative if anyone has any questions.

This would be an interesting follow. Please do post pictures and possibly a DIY. Would love to see how effective Evans Waterless Coolant is for the M3.

There is also the claim about "increases your fuel economy up to 10%" from the OP Jay Leno URL. I'd like to see how much validity there is in that statement. That's a huge increase in MPG for an M3!

Otherwise, sounds like snake oil to me...

Same thing with K&N (and other RACING) filters. Just don't understand why people want to use racing stuff on their STREET engines . To each his own though.
