The concentrate I just purchased at the Tischer BMW parts counter (list price $3.99 for a 500 ml /16.9 fl oz bottle) is pretty colorless and does not have "SMB" on the bottle. When mixed with water, it is a very pale blue but seems to spray out white. The label says "Windshield Washer Antifreeze" and "Original BMW CareProducts" as well as "Made in Germany", and that 8 oz of the concentrate mixed with 1 gallon of water will protect down to 27oF and 32 oz mixed with 1 gallon of water will protect down to 10oF. While a smaller 3 oz bottle was also available, it contains no freezing protection.

And it cleans quite well and smells very nice.
