This part is listed by BMW as BMW part number 12317526286 and is described as Alternator - Water-Cooled - 180 amp - E65 745i / 760i and E66 745Li / 760Li. Also used on the Alpina B7.

Some of the earlier models (2003 and older) used a smaller amperage alternator that was only rated at 150 amps. The smaller 150 amp alternator was phased out and replaced with the larger 180 amp generator, so you can be assured you are getting the latest / upgraded alternator unit in this scenario.
