Question about 2003 BMW 325
Tucked snugley beneath the intake manifold on the driver side (US) of the engine. I have not yet replaced one on an e46. Bosch starters on small engines generally last a couple hundred thousand miles.
Based on the way it looks and my experience with the previous generation of 3-series BMWs, replacing it will be a real PITA. If you pay a dealer to do it, be ready for a bill on the order of $1000. If you pay an independent shop, I would guess you will pay around $700. If you do it yourself, be ready to remove and replace your intake manifold, which is no small task on an e46.
The starter itself is about $250 new or $150 remanufactured.
