Patrick is a great guy and really knows his stuff. Yourmechanic.com rips you a new one on parts and labor but i guess you pay for not having the headache. I paid 370 labor for 3 hours and 255 for parts that go for 65 bucks on parksgeek.com and even cheaper on a few other sites but for original bmw parts it is 65 and they charged 255. Fyi. If it can wait a couple days, buy the parts first

All about Alternator Replacement

The alternator is the component that charges the battery in your car. When you use electrical components in your car (stereo, lights, etc.), the battery loses power. The alternator recharges the battery, replenishing the lost battery power. The alternator is located in the engine compartment. If the alternator is not working properly, your car will only stay running for as long as the battery has power stored. Once the battery loses power, your car will not start. Normally, a malfunctioning alternator will turn on the battery warning light or will have a low volt gauge reading.
