Greg,

I just received the most recent edition of The Star Magazine. It is the official magazine of the Mercedes-Benz Club of America.

In the Technical Tips section, compiled by Stu Ritter, there is a short paragraph on coolant:

"In 1999 the factory began using two kinds of engine coolant anti-freeze. The original is tinted yellowish, and the new one is tinted bluish. Both are compatible with each other."

Both the yellow and the blue coolant are available in the U.S.
