Hello All,

I need an alternator asap.

If anyone has one lying around please pm me and let me know how much you want.

Or if you know of somewhere i can pick one up relatively cheap.

Thanks,

Brad, keep in mind, cheaper isn't always better. A alternator build with bosch parts is better then parts made in china. Now this also depends on whether the parts are actually german bosch or chinese bosch. Either way some are built with parts that are neither making the cost cheaper to rebuild and resell. if you get one of these knock offs you could potentially run into problems down the road. within a year even. That's why some places give 30-60 days or a year at most warranty. they know recall rate.

to save yourself 50-100 bucks doesn't always pay in the long run. give this some thought. :-)

ps. I'm sure someone on here could help you out..eventually. :-)
