    It will probably be 80 amps, think my 99 m3 is 120 amps and the biggest one on our shelves for a bm is a 140 amp

    and guess what it did not fit. the amp would of been fine but mine has an air duct on it for cooling and the holes for the exsiting bolts dont fit too big and is different in shape for fitting in . o well it was trial and error i took the sticker of it now and have the details of amp and stuff. i asked a local supplier and wants 115 quid for a refurb and national tyres said 150 new inc vat. going to look round for one again . any ideas people . just looked at quarry motors but i was after something close to home to pick one up cheap. i live preston lancashire
