Will suit e39 5-series 540i and e38 7-series 740i from 09/1998 manufacture date. Also e53 X5 from similar period.
Possibly fits V8 Range Rover from approx 2002 - 2004 also. And possibly 535i e39 and 735i e38.
This is the water-cooled type alternator that is used only on these later M62 twin VANOS engines.
If you are unsure if this will fit your car, please let me know your rego number or VIN number and I can confirm compatibility
Good working condition - came off a well serviced NZ New X5 with approx 220,000 kms. The vehicle had no electrical or charging issues.
PLEASE NOTE: There is a small amount of damage on the front plastic cover of the unit. This occurred when it was in storage and something heavy knocked against it. I have uploaded photos to show the damage. It would ideally need to be sealed with silicone sealant or similar to prevent ingress of dust etc. I have priced the unit accordingly.
I was keeping this to use on my old BMW 740i, but that car is now sold, and this part is no longer required.
As this is from my personal parts collection, It is not covered by a 90-day "in trade" guarantee, however I will guarantee it for a period of 14 days from date of delivery (tracked freight used)
I am confident that there are no issues with it, but it can be returned for a full refund if it is accompanied with a report from a registered mechanic or auto electrician to confirm that a fault exists.
Genuine BMW / BOSCH part - very expensive to buy new from the BMW dealer - around $1800 + GST when I last looked!
Also please note that I do NOT require your old alternator as a trade in (I have seen some of these alternators for sale where there is an additional "core charge" of $150 + on top of the sale price if the old alternator is not provided)
Note - freight is relatively expensive for this item due to its weight.
