To start with, put your VIN number into REALOEM and determine the correct part number based on your options. We all have our favorite mailorder suppliers, but I use ECS, and have generally gotten very few foul ups over many, many orders. If you plug that part number into ECS's web site, it will give you the valid options, (if there are any).

But it's really crazy how many different alternators these cars use depending on options. I was also surprised to see mine was not a Bosch part.
