It really depends on what tho.. With inspection and etc, there's nixon. With mod, you can take your car to almost everywhere.

just sent my 02 e39 in ..... was told a new alternator needed :(
will pick up the car this afternoon..hopefully everything is good :P
talked to Ryan, very nice guy, willing to explain everything to me ! (i know nothing about auto mechanics...)

btw, how much does a water-cooled alternator roughly cost? just curious...
in fact, oem alternators are easily found on internet, and they usually cost from 400~700(some are even core included)....if i'm charged around 1000 at an indy, is that reasonable ? i'm totally not an expert to it....so i would like to hear your opinion :)
