Napa in my area sells remanufactured Bosch 120 amp alternators for $194 + $35 core charge, 90 amp is $149 + core (not sure why you would go mail order when local is the same price).

So for $35 you could keep and rebuild it, but with a lifetime warranty on the remanufactured unit, why would you need to?

And my two nearby Napa's had the alternator on the self too.
I like coffee.
My e39 is fixed and moving towards atrophy.
