Pressure Adapter

Hi! New to forum, and a quick question. I am trying to pin down a coolant leak in a 2001 740IL; hoses all replaced etc ... I have a STANT tester (with the 'standard' radiator cap fixture, and I need to buy an adapter that will let me use it on this car. I see some on the internet but they reference only up to 1999.

Will these work on the 2001, can anyone help?

I have heard there's a dye you put in the coolant, which when you have a leak will show under ultraviolet light..

Here you go:

I stepped in a plate of Pasta the other day - now I have to worry about my Carbonara footprint!
