    Is there any difference between Mini branded coolant and BMW branded coolant?

    I ask because TheBMWPartStore.com shipped me the former when I ordered the latter, and I don't know whether I should insist that they exchange it. It's for an E38. (If I wanted something "almost" like BMW coolant I could have bought Zerex for less money.)

    Thanks!

    Yes the MINI and BMW coolant is the same coolant can be used between both just different bottles for marketing reasons.
