    Med Wet considered this market but realized we are specialists in hot air making cold air tire temperature tests impossible.

    Will the Med Wet susbscription require a standalone GPS device, or can it piggyback off a SPOT?

    Will you be willing to serve the non-emergency needs of individuals without Wasserboxers who just want cold beer delivered to their campsite?

    1)No, 2)Maybe.
    A standalone GPS is not required. This will become clear (at least it was clear to us when we wrote it) when you read the Med Wet Member Information Book.

    I believe we will be able to piggyback SPOT. I will have to talk with our IT Director of Development when she gets back from summer camp to verify this and that it is included in the base Med Wet Membership services or if this is a premium application feature.

    Med Wet supplies Members with BMW Specification Coolant required for WasserBoxers. Our relationship and guarantee is for delivery of a third party specified liquid. Your application of that fluid to your application needs and its relationship to any warranty provided by BMW is between you and BMW.

    Thank you for your interest in Med Wet. We look forward to serving your needs.

    DEX-COOL and tap water has served me well since the early 1990's in two K bikes with no apparent problems. I came to understand the superiority of OAT anti-freezes as a fleet manager for a medium sized tank truck company and use it in my K bikes and my V-Rods. In my two Audi's I use Pentosin G-11 per Audi spec, though I ran one of these Audi's for almost two decades with DEX-COOL (after a timing belt change) with no problems. As long as you start with a clean and fully drained cooling system, OAT coolants like DEX-COOL are the way to go.

    Just don't let Dex-Cool get low. As I understand it, it does not react with air well and will turn to sludge. I have run it in my Silverado for 12 years without a problem, but there are no end of stories about a small leak turning into a nightmare. This is particularly true for the Chevy Blazers (ask my brother). Hence it's nickname Death-Cool.

    Just something to beware of.

    There is airspace in the overflow tank and nothing bad happens??? You still have to replace DEXCOOL every few years, just not as often as other coolant types.

    MedWet has been in discussions with a custom brat maker to develop a warranty safe beer brat using our coolant replacement. We will be providing catering information in the near future.

    The, um, product might use OEM German components but it is processed through a mixed heritage gut, lol. There might be some foreign content to deal with.
