I managed to make it to within a mile of my house, but when I pulled in the clutch at a stop light, the engine died and there was no way to restart it.

Got a Rick's stator on order. There's no way I'm paying US$900 for the BMW kit.

I can't change my vote now, but I'm now in the 40-60K failure camp.
I'll see if I can figure out how to change your vote!
While you're waiting for the new stator, if you haven't done it already,
be sure to put your battery on the charger - AGM batteries hate to be left discharged!
