Help, need to buy a battery today in Manhattan for e90

Hello everyone,

I went to my car today and it wouldn't start. The key didn't work, but the door was open. I am not sure if I left a light on in the car. I haven't used the car in a week. I never leave my door unlocked, I don't know if there was a power outage, shortage or electrical phenomenon. I tried a jump to no avail I was unsuccessful, only the radio came on. I called bmw and they are closed.

Would anyone happen to know where can I buy a new battery as I have had this one for 7 years? I hope that is the only issue.

Thank you in advance

You cannot simply connect cables and expect to start your car from another battery when your own battery is dead. Be a bit patient, let the other car's alternator (with its engine not simply idling but engine at 2000 rpm) put some charge into your own battery for some minutes before giving a try at starting your own engine while the other car's battery and engine are running about 2000 rpm.
