My '81 733i had a dead compressor also.
Spotted a Japanese one - Seltec - via this website

under air conditioning

I am in Australia and chickened out on bringing a unit from the U.S. and finding it didn't quite fit, or something.
So, I had the original compressor, Bosch (made in Japan!), reconditioned in Melbourne.
I would have liked the newer technology Japanese one too - allegedly more efficient.
