This is the coolant or anti-freeze that MINI recommends for your MINI. MINI Recommends the coolant system drain and refill EVERY 4 YEARS as listed in the 'Additional Service Items' section of Inspection II. This will maximize longevity of the cooling system and its components.

This Blue coolant is specially formulated with no Phosphates or Nitrites to ensure compatibility with your MINI Cooper and S. The factory recommends replacement every 4 years but many owners like to change more often.

MINI recommends a 50% mix of this coolant and distilled water. Coolant comes in one gallon bottles, may be labelled 'MINI' or 'BMW' depending on supply.

Approximate capacity of cooling systems:

Both Gen 1 and Gen 2 Minis (Rxx)
Cooper - 5.6 quarts
Cooper S - 6.3 quarts

Gen3 Minis  (Fxx)
Cooper with manual transmission - 4.9 liters
Cooper with automatic transmission - 5.7 liters
Cooper S with manual transmission - 5.8 liters
Cooper S with automatic transmission - 6.1 liters

Do not add coolant to the cooling system when the engine is hot. Escaping coolant can cause burns.

See instructions on drain and refill here.

Comply with applicable environmental laws regulating the disposal of coolant additives. Always dispose of used anti-freeze according to local laws and regulations.

Here is an interesting post from a popular MINI forum:

I'm a Master Level ASE tech (plus L1 and X1 cert)., and I teach Automotive Technology at a local Community College. You guys putting in the wrong fluids keep me, and my students who go on to join the tech workforce in business. Let's just say in my time dealing with European cars since '93 I've seen more than a few water pump impellers dissolved, heads fail, rotted intakes, and cooling system woes. It's simply not worth skimping on. I'm not saying you have to march out to the dealer, but you should research who makes the OEM fluids and stick to them. People forget the chemistry in today's cars is as complex as the electronics.

 
 
Question:
I own a 2013 Mini Paceman JCW. I'm currently shy of 34k miles. I occasionally get an odd laggy shifting between gears but its not bad. Just seems like it takes a long time and its not a smooth as I would like it. Its an automatic CVT transmission. My dealership here in Orlando, FL doesn't recommend changing the fluid as its a lifetime fluid. They also don't recommend changing the Coolant just yet. I've changed the brake fluid with OEM fluid at 30K and I replace the engine oil every 5K or earlier with Amsoil fully synthetic. Any suggestions on the coolant and the transmission fluid intervals replacement and if it should be replaced?
Answer:
The transmission in your 2013 R61 JCW Paceman should be the Aisin 6-speed automatic transmission. The CVT was last used in 2008 for the convertibles.

34k miles is fairly early for the transmission fluid, but then it would depend on who you talk to. A transmission specialist will probably tell you its time to change the fluid, the dealer will follow the manufacturer recommendation which is probably 100k. In either case, you should either change it frequently or never. If you wait too long like 100k+, I have read that you shouldn't change since it might cause problems....

In our opinion, it 'can' be time for the coolant since it has been 7 years since the car was built - but you will probably get a different answer depending on who you talk to. If it were my car, I would change it.
