By the way, I'm not sure if this is a record, but I bought my 02 in 2005 just as it came off of a 3 year lease (36K miles), and I just started to get airbag and seat tensioner faults just a few months ago. Took it took my local BMW tech (3D Autoworks in Hudson NH - not the dealer) to get it fixed and Dan said "this is the original battery!!!" Of course low voltage faults all over the place. So I got 10 years out of the stock battery and couldn't be more pleased considering all of the battery related issues I've seen on the forum. Sitting at 182,000 miles now and going strong .
