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.

I need to now ware area of engine is crankshaft sensor 525i 2001 bmw


Hi rafymoctezum,

The crankshaft sensor for your car is located near the starter. The best way to see it is to remove the driver's side microfilter housing and connected air tube. If you are looking at the starter, the crankshaft sensor is located to the right and is held in place with a 5mm allen bolt.

Where is the starter solenoid located on a 1994 bmw 525i


The starter solenoid is located on the starter. It looks like a miniature version of the starter which is attached to the starter. The starter relay, however, is located in your engine compartment on the passenger's side under the black box which also houses your cars main computer. This black box is located towards the back of the engine compartment (close to the windshield) on the passenger's side. There are 4 philips head screws which hold it in place.
