Coolant Choice 2019 McLaren 570S

I have never topped off the coolant in my 570S, and I noticed that it was below the bottom step when I checked it. I know that Mobil Antifreeze Extra is used from the factory (I think???) but I can not get any in the US. What substitute coolant brand and type should I use. Some recommended Prestone 50/50 Yellow. Do I need to do a full flush or can I just top off with the prestone?

Coolant: see Owner's Manual (OM 5.6)
It's CLOSE to a 50% solution: capacity is 6.2gal & manual recommends using 3.5gal anti-freeze/coolant (56.5%) and balance of 2.7gal H20 (43.5%)

As an aside, I made a note for my future use of the following products for the 570 you'd typically use for topping off while I've been lurking here:

Oil: 0W-40 Mobil One (OM 5.3) system capacity is 2.4gal/9liter
Coolant: I trust eMcL! Mobil Antifreeze Extra or Valvoline Zerex G48 (OM 5.6) system capacity 6.2gal/23.47liters
Power steering fluid: refill using Pentosin CHF202; fill is on US passenger side of frunk
Brake fluid: refill using Pentosin DoT 5.1; fill is on US driver side of frunk
Windshield washer: fill is on US driver side of frunk, as well...

I would certainly think coolant eMcL mentions for MY2016 would be fine for MY2019;
I sure don't remember hearing of any changes, but please confirm for yourself for safety!
