E82 / E87 / E88 / F20 1 Series (2008 - 2014)
BMWs throw back to the iconic 2002, with a renewed form and function. The smallest car in BMW's line up but still packs a punch. Available in coupe or convertible, powered by a naturaly aspirated inline 6 in the 128 or the turbo twin power inline 6 rocket sled 135.

Battery compartment stash

What survival stuff are y'all putting into your battery compartment/lower trunk stash? The long box on the left black is a socket set with ratchet, crescent, vice grips, swivel extension, wrenches. The plastic bag contains the Walmart kit of screwdriver heads, quick sockets and bending extension. The white bag close to the middle has the jump start battery and cables, very tiny. Under that there's a 12v air compressor pump, in front of that big channel locks, under that some more ratchets and a hammer. Over the right-hand corner of the battery is a multimeter, on top of the battery are plastic body pry tools, far upper right is the battery terminal cleaner, under that the towing eye not visible in the picture is an extension mirror and a Leatherman tool, under the socket set are the tire plugging items. No tow truck for me. Is there any obvious thing that I'm missing?

oh, a Fletch joke, I'm into that genre of movies but I could just never get into Fletch for some reason. Are the 30 weight ball bearings part of that, too?

Mighty be helpful if we knew where you are in regards to location. Can't tell what country or continent you reside because you have no location info listed.

Most battery brand names aren't universal. What's available in the US market is probably not available in the Australian, Canadian, or UK markets. See where this is going?
