starter question

...since that's for the 4-cylinder M42 engines introduced in 1991, not the earlier M10 used in our cars (and the 320i, the '84-'85 E30 318 and, in a varied form, the E30 M3). I also understand early "big six" starters to work, since those engines (from most 5-series cars and their predecessors before 1982 and E28 533/535s through '88) are more-or-less M10s with two more cylinders.

I've heard the best upgrade is the E30 M3 starter for its light weight, though the six-cylinder starters may also have more torque than the stock 2002 units.

I don't know for sure, but I don't think the starter in the auction would work on an '02.

Colorado '71, still the original starter
