Replacing Starter 2002 540I - Need to decide soon, starter intermitent now
 
I am getting ready to order a starter for my mechanic to put in. I was wondering how you all felt about getting a referbished or remanufactured part.
Oreilly will warranty it for lifetime, but I don't want to keep replacing it if it makes more sense to buy a new one if they are out there even.

Their all Bosch rebuilt starters, I replaced one in a friends 540 last winter that he got from Advanced Auto or something like that. It was in a new Bosch box, no shipping and was less than $200.
