Suginami has a valid point, why risk an expensive car for the sake of a few dollars? I am still at a loss though, as to why my 30 year old SLC has been perfectly happy with coolant other than MB and yet our 300TE with dealer service history had such a badly corroded head gasket. Also, why is your MB coolant yellow and ours blue? It's not like we pee blue here in Oz!
