Default wrong color coolant in recent purchase

I'm sure this has been hashed out here before, but I recently bought a B6 A4 as a little commuter car. Runs great (has new Eng & trans) but I noticed the previous owner ran the typ. neon green coolant. How screwed am I if this is that dex cool crap? I know I can't top if with the g12. Thanks in advance for any response.

The previous owner probably had his coolant changed at a non audi specific shop and they probably just refilled it with the green type. Don't worry, you can now use the green stuff freely. Do NOT use G12, it will congeal when mixed with the green stuff.
