Is it safe to use this coolant on my 528i?

Yes. some will disagree, but you can use any coolant. Ive had no issues using Supertech coolant as needed. When I had my alternator replaced, the indy shop used off the shelf 50/50, no blue coolant.

The main thing to look for on a product label is that it be phosphate & nitrite free.
