HOW FAR DOES IT DROP????HOE OFTENDO YOU ADD.. IS THE OVER FLOW BOTTLE HALF FULL?SOME RUN LOWER THAN OTHERS...IS IT BURNING THE WATER??ANY SMOKE??HOW LONG DOES IT TAKE TO GO LOW...FANS CUT IN WHEN SITTING IN TRAFFIC...GOOD...

Overflow bottle normally half full. Although recently if I top up to half full, then I run for a few miles, bottle will drop down to lower level. No smoke. Is there any problems with running low level?

Yes, you can overheat the engine and then you'll be replacing it. Change out the coolant reservoir and other components that are old, dry and cracked and leaking.....http://www.e46mango.com/2014/10/hi-this-is-mango-from- e46fanatics.html
