your indy probably means the old blue saab coolant which is seemingly becoming hard to find... try bmw dealers also?
it is possible the green s#!t is compatible... if you use it, change it often...
whatever you do, don't put in dexcool (which is orange)!
fwiw, in our c900s, we use Mercedes coolant (aka Zerex G05). In our 2004 9-5 we use dexcool, but that's because it came with dexcool... dexcool is probably not compatible with other coolants + you should avoid mixing coolants (in general), but especially with dexcool...
if I had a car that came with saab blue coolant, I would switch it over to G05, mainly for availability reasons... but that's just my bias... I doubt the specific coolant is as critical on the newer cars as some of the c900s, and less so if you change it regularly...
