alternator and airdam questions

After searching the archives and the FAQs for alternator upgrade info, it looks like the 320i swap is the most common. For anyone who has done this, have you liked it? Are there any other alternator upgrades for a non tii ('69) that I should think about? I think I remember reading about an early 5-series alternator working for a 2002, but I could be wrong.

Second, I'm looking for an air dam for my car and finally found one I like. Unfortunately, all I have is this picture (taken from 2002bmw.com) to go by.

I've seen others like the Turbo air dam with the slender opening in the middle, but I think the one in the picture with just two small round openings looks nicer. Can anyone ID this air dam and tell me where I can find one?

Thanks

Ireland Engineering has one that looks like the zender but its made of black ABS plastic instead of fiberglass. Probably more durable but hard to paint. hard to tell in the pic but I have one on my car.

are plentiful for non tii cars. just a matter of how many amps you want/need and fitment. Lots of guys are going to the 318 because it puts out 80 amps, i think. The 320 Bosch puts out 65 amps, which is quite adequate to run high wattage lights and high wattage accessories. If you do a search of the FAQ archives and the Roadfly archives for your options on both questions you will find the prices and installation tips. There has been a lot written about each subject in just the last year. Good luck. Dont forget you will need to order rattle can paint to match you car's BMW color to prepaint the air dam before installation. Much easier to do that way.
