Please note that these are not the long life coolants:

You should use products meeting 325.2 or 325.3 or newer

So don't top up with 325.3 if your car currently has 325.0? My 05 book says 325.0 and has a 14y/150k lifespan supposedly.

Your book has one of the many F---ups that Benz make. 325.0 will never go 14/15 years.

I suspected as much. No matter. My car would have 400,000 miles @ 15 years old - coolant would be the last to worry about. What's a good interval?

My 100k list is growing as it rapidly approaches. I'm about 90 days away from it.

2003 C230K Coupe
Hey guys. Coolant check came on this week. 2003 C230 Kompressor Coupe - manual says 325.0 anticorrosion/anti-freeze. I looked up the list of approved on the bevo.mercedes-benz website here: https://bevo.mercedes-benz.com/bevolistenmain.php?navigation_path=bevolisten&lang uage_id=1&blatt=325.0&content_action=show&mark=&su chbegriff=
and I see the Zerex G-48 is an approved coolant.

The Zerex G-48 coolant is blue, mine is currently orange. I did some search and most said colour is not an issue (i.e. I can mix blue with my current orange).
Also, the manual talks about how important it is to use the anticorrosion coolant because of the aluminum parts. But I don't see that the Zerex G-48 says anthing about anti-corrosion. I'm assuming because it's on the MB approved list, it's ok? Just wanted some clarification from other W203 owners.

Thanks in advance guys!

Not saying the coolant is bad - it needs to be topped up. Checking on the appropriate coolant to add.
