Everything I've read in VW forums shows that it's very hard to determine if the Prestone extended life coolants are tested to the exacting standards of the VAG engineering. That being said, there are cheaper sources than the dealer for the G12 juice. Check this thread from the TDICLUB forum. http://forums.tdiclub.com/showthread.php?t=98055

Apparently, Dexcool can erode some plastics.
