Faulty Battery :( Purchase from dealership?
Just to recap, I wasnt sure if I previously had a battery issue or alternator issue. Well, I finally bought my car into my shop and they told me I had a faulty battery..
Problem is, that they want to charge 600$ for a new battery and installation. Plus $120 to look at the car, so a total of almost $720CAD!
Is that worth it?
Or am I better off sourcing my own battery and putting it in myself? (My boyfriend is able to put the battery in for me if I need him to)
Also, if I were to source my own battery... any recommendations on a good location in vancouver bc?
i saw in a previous post that I would need
110AH regular Bmw battery
90AH AGM Bmw Battery
Does it matter which one I get?
Thanks in advance for the help!
