Thanks for responding...

The current fluid is only 2-3 months old... Do you think this is just some residual junk from the last time it was drained? I had the thermostat and casing replaced about 2 months ago and the reservoir about 3-4 months ago. So a lot of fresh fluid has been run through it in the past 4 months.

I am pretty sure the mechanic did everything right. He has access to the BMW TIS and OEM computer and he is good.

I have attached a pic of the amount of Jell. Since I have not seen it before, I do not know if it is a lot or a little.

Not to cut corners--- but do you think it would be safe to suck out all of the jell that is visible--- top it off with fresh coolant mix and re-check it is a week to see how much comes back.

If it is just residual, I might not need to do a complete flush.

The temps have not been running hot at all.

It is a 2007 Z4 E85
