Red really withstand much lower tempratures... not really needed here.

I've just bumped into a guy who rides a Hayabusa like me, and who also works in a Toyota dealer. He said they do 2 types of coolant, green and red.The red stuff is for japanese-built engines (MR2) and the green stuff is for uk-built engines like the (corolla etc).Anyway he said the MR2 MUST have red coolant.

He also got me the spares I need for my mate's AW11 at a fantastic price, after I sorted out a problem on his bike. :D

QUOTE form MR2 owners manual

"Your coolant must contain either ethylene-glycol antifreeze or anticorrosive. Ethylene-glycol antifreeze is the antifreeze contained in the coolant your new toyota is delivered with...read the antifreeze or anticorrosive container fot information..."

I think this means red ethylene glycol Halfords stuff is fine :thumbsup:
