autohaus has one for a little over $200. I think they are still offering free shipping.

You could try a junk yard. They might be able to find you one for less.

Also lookup Strictlygerman on eBay. He should have it "used" for a decent price ($75 :dunno: ). Keep in mind that all his parts are salvage.

You may also be able to get one "salvage" from Westcoastautopart.net. These are the folks that got me my door for the Touring.

I'm hesitant to buying something used/salvage/etc, but I don't know if I can afford >200 for a new one.


How hard is it to install a new one, also?

It is a pain. Do you have a bentley manual?

Don't buy used, they are at least 13 years old. You might save $30 or so but find yourself doing it over again soon.
This procedure gets you a new motor for near the price of a used one.
