Hello

I've recently had a coolant change on my S. It's looking a little low and could do with topping up (maybe air in the system still working its way out or something but still above minimum).
I went to my local Halfords and was recommanded 'G40' which looked okay but it was pink. The coolant in my car is orange.

I did hear that Porsche has revised the type of coolant they use but can I mix different colour coolants? If not, what do I use?

Forgive my technical ignorance!

Cheers

I always use Porsche coolant. I think it's called Pentosin.

Clear of my OCD, I used Comma G40 (Xstream), which is Elf/Porsche equivalent.

£22.99 from Halfords ready-mixed 50:50 5L (although I am sure you could source cheaper from elsewhere)

More info here:

(OEM coolant is pink)
