    My 1980 320i needs a new starter. Is the starter motor easy to access? I'd like to atempt the repair myself. I am looking to source the part from BavAuto, unless someone else has a better idea.

    Thanks in advance.

    It is about as easy as it can be on a BMW. Only two bolts, right there on the driver's side of the motor. Pelican Parts may or may not have it cheaper. Hell, even the local auto parts stor might be able to get one for you.
