Are you doing a complete flush and fill or just adding coolant to a low
coolant supply?  If its the first then how far is your local
Wal-Mart.   Any major brand ethylene glycol based coolant labels as
"phosphate free" or "safe for ALL engines" or the like will suffice quite
nicely.  The Audi/VW branded stuff is simply overpriced "stick it to 'em"
