Best place(s) to buy engine coolant?


Passed Driver's Ed
I can order online and pay shipping, but wondering if Autozone, Oreilly, etc. sell approved coolant mix for the Mk6 Golf R? I am located in the USA and looking for a local distributor if possible.

Thanks for any recommendations/info. It looks like Autozone sells a premixed "PEAK" coolant made for European vehicles but want to be sure it will work properly.

I don't think any Peak coolants are formulated for VAG cars, at least newer ones. They sell pentafrost which will work but you can get a gallon of g12/g13 on ebay for much cheaper than you would in the stores and with free shipping. Its straight coolant so you mix it.

Peak website shows the Euro Violet and long life are compatible in 50/50 and full strength... They have a year make model search. I assume you would do a complete drain/refill.
