I'm struggling with a starting/possibly charging problem.
As of this morning, I've gone through 3 failed starter motors since July. I'm wondering if the fact that I use the M5's 120A alternator has something to do with this (original E34 is 140A). My lights do flicker a bit at idle, it's barely noticeable and goes away as soon as I hit 1000 rpm.
My battery is healthy, and aside from the starters failing to crank altogether, never had a hard start.
