I'm getting ready for a couple of classes on the Utah Miller Motorsport Park. Like all good track facilities, Miller requires the glycol be removed from the cooling system and replaced with a water and water wetter additive mixture.
Has anyone tried to replace the anti-freeze in the K12S cooling system? The local BMW dealership told me it is a 2-hour process and requires a special tool, a special tank, and special a VACUUM setup. I checked the BMW Shop Manual CD, and that looks about right.
Has anybody found anything better than paying a couple of hours labor to your extortionist, er dealership (sorry, Jerry, but your line seems to fit)? Can you say OVER ENGINEERED. Draining it doesn't appear to be a problem. Refilling it is another story.
As much as I love riding this machine, the disappointments are really starting to stack up. Let's see, BMW has essentially ensured I can't work on the electrical or cooling system without putting a small fortune in specialized equipment. Me thinks this is starting to feel like a shakedown.
