Wow, that's a great post!

I had some of the same issues (failure to start, CEL, rough idling, etc) on my 08 and replaced the IVM and they went away as well. I didn't bother to take the old one...

2007 on the stock battery? Wow, that has to be a record. I would go the AGM route which I think is what Manny, Moe, and Jack sell.

My 2008 650 convertible is my daily driver from April thru Dec and aside from replacing the IVM which cost about $100 it has been great.

Wow, I can't believe that liner shrunk that much. I would replace it.

It only needs to be registered if you are changing the battery type (lead acid to AGM or changing the amp hours). That is of course if it was correctly registered in the first place.

If you're only getting 11 volts while running, whether or not the battery is registered is the least of your problems.

25-35K will get you an 08 and maybe an 09. I don't think you can find a 10 worth having for that much. I wouldn't get a 07, simply because they don't have the LCI enhancements. I have an 8 with...
