When I bought my 200 it had blue G12 coolant in it. I have always assumed that this was stock. I just got the car back from a timing belt/water pump/etc repair from a reputable audi shop, non dealer, and the coolant is green. I called them when I noticed and they said that this car doesn't require the more expensive G12 and a quality aftermarket is what they have always used. This includes the owners S4 w/ a 20V engine. 
Any thoughts or comments?
