update to post #102 above

Tried to edit my post above (#102) but apparently it's too old to edit.

If you have the oval-shaped electrical connector on your voltage regulator, the BMW p/n for the VR is 12317515319 and the Bosch p/n for the VR is W0133-1665703.

The alternator in question, although installed in some E46 models, is in BMW parts documentation as the alternator for E85 and E60 models with the M54 motor.
