Serpentine Belt for 2003 E53 4.6is

Does anyone know if this is the correct serpentine belt that goes on the alternator pulley?

I'm getting parts together for a planned alternator replacement job.

First time doing the replacement so wanna make sure i've got all the parts needed.

So far I've purchased a premium reman Bosch alternator. Getting the fan clutch removal tool from FCPEuro:

The BMW coolant:

Been reading up on the various threads for the diy procedure. Just got the reman Bosch today. It's so heavy you need to hold it with 2 hands. Can't imagine how i'll be able to wiggle the original out of the housing with that tight of a space.

Anyway, any suggestions welcome, but please help me determine if this is the correct replacement belt.

Figure I'd replace the belt while the old one is out.

Much obliged and have a great rest of the weekend!

p.s. Can you use any antifreeze brand from Autozone or Oreilly's?
