Buy your OEM parts online.  You'll save a ton of money!

www.impexfap.com wants $497.43 (including an $83.00 core charge) for a
rebuilt MK4 Bosch 120 amp TDI alternator.

www.germanautoparts.com only wants $240.45 for a BRAND NEW MK4 Bosch 120 amp
alternator.  Only catch is it comes with a pulley for a VR6 engine.  But you
can remove the VR6 pulley and install your original TDI pulley.  Same
alternator, just different pulleys.  Go figure.
