Peak Global Lifetime. And I recommend it over dexcool anytime as it does not have the plasticizer that's in dex or pretty much all lifetime coolants including prestone..

^^^^It's hard to go wrong with PGL no matter the AF spec. A LL OAT AF with as you note, no 2eha found in Dex and other universal AFs.

According to Pentosin/Pentofrost, newer model (06-) VW using their ++ AF does contain silicates.

According to ECS Tuning linked, Pentofrost E is G13. Not being that familiar with VW AF I put ++ not seeing it now superseded by Pentofrost E. E appears appears to be a HOAT, also using silicates. ECS Tuning a pretty good and authoritative source for VW/Audi parts and info, ime.

Why does it have to be after market? Just buy what they sell at Sea-Doo dealers. Then you know you're getting the right stuff. Yeah, you'll pay a few bucks more, but you'll know you are putting the correct coolant in your engine. After 2-1/2 years the coolant tank on my Jeep was a bit low. I went to the dealer where I bought it, and they sold me a gallon of the proper Mopar Coolant the factory shipped the vehicle with. Both the color and part number matched. It was $27.00 @ gallon, but so what? I barely used a pint in 2-1/2 years. So what it ended up costing me was meaningless in relationship to how long 2 gallons of the stuff will last me when mixed 50 /50.

nearest dealer is an hour drive round trip. Add another $20 for gas to the coolant price.

Honesty the plethora of coolants on the market is totally insane...
