Need to use an OAT coolant. Havoline DEX-COOL Extended Life Anti-Freeze/Coolant and Chevron DEX-COOL Extended Life Antifreeze/Coolant should meet specs.

It's been a bit of a challenge to sort this, though a bit less discussion-worthy than engine oils.

If you want to stick with the pink/purple color, Peak 50/50 Extended Life for European vehicles should be available at any local auto parts store.

I have a BV 300 from 2012, same engine as your GTS 300 from 2010.

According to its manual the coolant has to be compatible to the standard:
or ASTM D 3306
or ASTM D 4656
or ASTM D 4985
or CUNA NC 956-16
Color is red.

ASTM: American Society for Testing and Materials
CUNA: Commissione Tecnica di Unificazione nell'Autoveicolo (Italian standards organization)

I expect the ASTM standards will be more easy to find for you.

Don't know if you found it yet but this is the one I settled on after going through exactly what you're going through, the seemingly impossible search for coolant.

After all that searching and it was right around the corner at Advanced Auto, like starreem said
You need the one with the pink cap

Yes that's the one I landed on after going to three auto parts. Only Auto Zone had it. Thanks to all. Good Saturday!
