BlueBee, although I don't have a ready pic to show, thought I'd mention something. You've noticed no doubt that the Duralast + terminal cover is flush. The positive terminal plastic cover on the original BMW batteries will fit into the Duralast battery because the "feet" have the same spacing but the original BMW version has a gap that I found useful to channel the Duralast vent hose across the terminal and through and into the car-side hose. Works better for me than routing the hose around the positive terminal corner. If you kept the cover from your original battery, try it.
