Thanks.

Is the alternator on my car (05 745i) liquid or air cooled? If liquid cooled, cooled by oil or coolant? I've been reading about it and thus far people are talking about "oil" cooled, not "coolant".

That pipe was replaced a little over a year ago. Also, if that was the case, I think I would've seen coolant dripping on the front side of the engine.
