BMW 650 2008 - Battery Replacement Specs
I am trying to change my 2008 BMW 650 battery but don't want to spend $600 at a BMW dealership to do so ($300 for battery + $300 for installation/reprogramming the car). Thus, I would like to use a third party installer (such as Advance Auto Parts) that could also reset the car as required after a battery instillation.
I was wondering if you could confirm what is the original specs of the OEM Exide battery that comes with the car: what is the CCA (850 or 900)? is it AGM? what is the reserve capacity?
To help anybody facing the same issue as mine (getting a cheaper replacement battery), I made the table below that compares between the only famous providers of battery and installation the specs and costs of compatible battery:
So far I believe I will go with the AutoCraft Gold AGM from Advance Auto Parts! Also for your information Mr Tire, Firestone and Sears do not provide compatible batteries.
