Factory Prediluted BMW antifreeze

I've tried doing a search...but could not find it.
Do you know the exact part #?
Does BMW even make a Prediluted 50/50 antifreeze?

I'm planning to take my vehicle in for service and I was concern about the dealer using coolant with tap water mixture.
The S.A. informed me that they use factory Pre-mixed antifreeze..

Just want to confirm if such a thing exist...or if the S.A. was b-s-ing....


Thanks

Never seen it before. Throw a gallon of distilled water in the trunk and tell them to use it. (or do it yourself - with just a set of ramps you can do a 95% drain and fill in about 20 minutes).

I was planning to do it myself...but with the 335i, you have to remove the FMIC to get access to the drain plug on the radiator. The drain plug on the block is a mystery as well....
That's I am having a dealer do it....
