Which Alternator for 2003 530iA?
On RealOEM.com they show both a 90Amp and a 120Amp unit for 2003 530i. On Pelican Parts there are also different ones shown; 90A, 120A. Some are referred to as "compact" alternators, others are not. Some are Valeo brand and some are Bosch. The "compact" units indicate they have a "rectangular plus" connector. It's all quite confusing. Can anyone offer some advice?

You got to get in there and look. It says right on the alt if it is Valeo and/or Bosch. Also, with a flexible mirror, you can tell what the connection is like on the back, thus you'll know exactly what to get. Odds are pretty good, if you have a USA model, that you have this: 12317501599
If you post the last 7 digits of your VIN, I'll tell you
