you can do the non smart way test it like I did(not recommended but I didnt really care) start car, pull the positive cable and see if the car stays on.
On new cars doing this will turn off the car as there are failsafes, but not in the e46.
take it to an alternator shop/ independent
Cause ^iggaz styles are old like MachRc's sneakers. Lyrics are weak, like clock radio speakers.
Don't even stop in my station and attack. While your plan failed, hit the rail, like amtrak..
