E63 / E64 6 Series (2003 - 2013)
The E63/E64 BMW 6 Series builds on BMW's sporty heritage with aggressive lines and an incredible motor to back the design up. Available in coupe and convertible trims with a standard 4.8 liter engine producing 360 horsepower and 360 lb-ft of torque, the 6-series is a popular choice that exceeds expectations.

Mein Auto: 2008 BMW 6 Series Coupe
BMW 650 2008 - Battery Replacement Specs

Hi,

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.
