The alternator has decided to pack up on my W140 S600 and the car is currently parked outside my Indie, who said the part will be 450 gbp on it's own. I called ECP earlier today who can do a rebuilt lucas alternator for 328 gbp. I haven't called the main dealer of gsf yet. I did check euromerc and starpartz, but no luck. just having a look at google, it seems there quite a few companies out there who rebuild these for around the 150 mark. So I'm curious what others opinions are about which route go? Is there anywhere else I should check for prices?
