98.35% of the time you need to do a better job bleeding the cooling system.

I run only Prestone with two year changes and inside of cooling system is immaculate.

But if you have to ask what coolant to run, I strongly recommend you stick with BMW coolant.

Unless you illegally imported your car into the US, there is no M sport package offered here.
