      This is a Z4 alternator that the 330iZHP uses. Do not buy what what "matches 330i"--they have an extra duct and different connector and it won't fit. Once I had the correct part...very i

      NOT A Perfect Fit

      Comments about CARQUEST Alternator - Remanufactured - 120 Amps:

      I own a 2003 BMW 325i and after dropping off my car at a large chain auto shop, I received a call from the mechanic informing me that the alternator had incorrect plug-ins even though this site listed it as a perfect fit. Now, besides having to pay for the labor of an incomplete job, I also am not able to enjoy my Independence Day weekend.

        Comments about CARQUEST Alternator - Remanufactured - 120 Amps:

        I bought this product two weeks ago for my 2001 BMW 525i. It was fairly easy to install, just under an hour with the right tools. So far it has been spectacular. I would recommend it to anyone. Word of advice before you go spending an arm and a leg watch a YouTube video or two and do-it-yourself! If I can do it, you can!

        Comments about CARQUEST Alternator - Remanufactured - 120 Amps:

        Remanufactured alternator lasted one week before it went out. Would not recommend. I would suggest going to an import specialty store to purchase a remanufactured alternator for a BMW. Beware - Advance Auto will NOT pay for your labor or labor to repair shop to replace their defective part if you purchased the part.

          Had no problems installing this. Save your wire connector nut from the old one.

            I was hesitant to buy a remanufactured product, but the other reviews were glowing so I took the chance. The replacement alternator is an exact fit, finished to high standards, and includes QC test data. It went in smoothly and worked perfectly the first time. Highly recommended!

                  I'd recommend this alternator as a perfect replacement for BMW Series 3 E-46 builds beyond the 80K miles. Don't wait for this part to fail, as it will diminish your BMW performance before you notice it.

                      It is always recommended to replace with the higher amps alternator.
