you can use an alternator from 533 on 528e, but you will need to use an upper mount from that engine too and a couple washers as spacers. Otherwise the installation just like in the FAQ

Search AL41X. I recently upgraded to this model. It is 65amp internally regulated off a 5 series. I had to grind down the shaft a bit to make clearance for the fan, and I had to use a combination of pulleys and washers to align correctly. Curt Ingraham was nice enough to let me use parts off of some extra alternators he had, hopefully you have a parts place near by if you decide to go this route. Then follow the faq for the small wiring change.
