Coolant level???

The manual says to make sure the radiator coolant is between two symbols that look like an up arrow and a down arrow. But if you actually look at the reservoir it is very difficult to see those arrows. I THINK I see the arrows, on opposites sides of the reservoir. Anyway, I just added a coolant/water mix to fill the reservoir to approximately half way, where the two halves of the plastic reservoir meet.

Is that right?

Only check the coolant with engine cold.
I think you can feel the gap space between the two arrows with your finger. On US spec M235 arrows are on engine side of reservoir.
Looks like proper level is just below reservoir circumference seam.

The arrows are tough to spot - so I hope I'm right.
