The '99 540 with 105k finally needed a battery. It was in for a little radiator work, it's first, and the mechanic said the battery was weak. $120 for the battery and $40 to install. Checked into Batteries Plus, $89.99 less $10 with the coupon. I'll install myself. Three pics below. 1) New battery and old side by side. 2) BMW does pack it into the touring rather tight and more than a few things needed to be removed. 3) All buttoned up and looking (and running) good!

Looks identical to OEM - same manufacturer? Where did you pick up the battery and coupon, etc?

Nevermind...looked up their website and got the info I was looking for. Unfortunately, no store close enough :cry:

I assume the guarantee and time frame were similar between the OEM and the aftermarket battery?
