[DML] Re: Coolant overflow bottle and sensor?

Look for a late-80's/early 90's BMW 3 or 5 series - they use a 
pressurized plastic water reservoir that has a level sensor built 
into it. It's a little wider than the DMC unit.

This would have to *replace* the DMC coolant bottle - it's still
pressurized, and not an "overflow" bottle in the normal sense of
being on the de-pressurized side of the radiator cap.
