The turbo-alternator isn't a good idea, if you want more efficiency for a N/A engine you should make it normal turbo, and if your car is turbo the restriction of a high rpm/low force alternator isn't good either at 100%, now if you put the alternator in the turbo, well you could have better efficiency of engine less pressure on exhaust means better performance on engine.
And about BMW i know that in the 2010 m5 there was a electricity generator taking heat form the exhaust.
The temperature idea is cheaper and more efficient i think, but its expensive.
