Engine Coolant Type and Mix

I searched the instruction manual but couldn't find any details on the coolant type (BMW part# or equivalent) or suggested mix.

Does anyone know the coolant type? What about the mix? Typically it's 50/50 with distilled water, but I couldn't find anything that stated that.

Well, being the BMW noob that I am, I wasn't aware there was only one type of BMW coolant. Having gone through Audi and their menagerie of coolants (with even different Audi coolants for the same model but different year car), I assumed the same, but alas, it's not.

So, for those na´ve like me, BMW is just a "one size fits all" coolant and it's a 50/50 mix with distilled water per the BMW part's counter rep.
