That is quite the price. Unfortunately mine failed about 3hrs from home, so I ended up paying some indy (who f'ed other things) almost $700 based on the situation and not having a place to do the work or get the parts. Just and FYI, there are lots of writeups on e38.org BMW 7-series information and links that apply to the X5 4.4-4.8 since its the same/similar M62/N62.

I'd just hop onto Google and find places that rebuilt alternators.

Just bought one from autohausAZ yesterday.

Decent price, big company, efficient service (already have the RMA packing slip)

It kills me not to buy from Tischer, but some certain parts are unreasonably marked up.

Had mine replaced at an indie shop, my X had about 101k mls. at the time. All cars have to have the alternator replaced at some point.
The 4.4 alt. is huge, it's a water cooled alternator, I had never seen that in a car before.
Another expensive toy.
