  2. X3 F25 (2011 - 2017)
    2014 X3 xDrive 2.8 had a battery test showing just 550 out of 950 cold cranking power on the original battery, hence it looks like replacement time. The dealership wanted $343 for parts and labor, which seems a bit excessive. The battery itself of this capacity should run around $200, which is...
  3. E36/7 Z3 (1996-2002)
    Time for a new battery in my 98 Z3. The PO put in a new BMW battery just before I bought it 5 years ago. I want to replace it with something other than the glorified lawn mower battery that BMW sells. Looking in the forums I see that the battery replacement and type is registered in the...

    After An oil change at my dealer, and a subsequent battery replacement installation by me, my MPG increased from 19.1 max ever to 21.6 for a 850 mile trip uphill from Daytona Beach to Western Kentucky. I'm sure the history data was cleared during the battery exchange, but we average about 2000...

    Hi, after taking my 3 Series E91 to the BMW Dealer for replacing the battery, my front windows (both) will no longer roll up automatically. They will roll up: IF I KEEP HOLDING the switch, but they no longer will go up by themselves if I tip the switch (which is how it used to work, before...

    Good afternoon! I recently purchased a 2003 BMW 325i (e46). First time BMW owner here :). It's in practically mint condition, with the exception of the key fob. The key will lock/unlock doors and arm/disarm the alarm, but the remote does not. I read through this entire thread, but was not...
  7. E90/E91/E92/E93 (2006 - 2013)
    So I think it's time for me to replace the battery in my car and I'm looking at something that's in the area of the same specs as the original battery. Around 900CCA and 1000CA. The Autozone website doesn't tell me if it'll fit my vehicle or not, but will a 95r-dlg battery fit my vehicle...

    Can anyone with ACTUAL BMW Maintenance experience answer if it is crucial that you buy an exact replacement battery. For example, I have an 2007 335xi that badly needs a new battery, the current battery is a 12V 90 Ah 720 A 720 CCA 160 RC (pictured), do I have to get a battery with those exact...

    Hello everyone! I am going to apologize in advance if this question has already been asked. I have read similar forums related to my issue but no one responding with a definitive answer. I am new here as I just bought a 2008 BMW 335i a couple months back. Unfortunately, I am already...
  13. E90/E91/E92/E93 (2006 - 2013)
    Hello Members: The i-Drive screen on my 328xi (90K) is starting to take excessive time loading. My battery seems to be straining to start in cold weather, probably time to replace it. Do I really need to buy my battery from the dealership? Please advise. Thanks
  14. X3 E83 (2004 - 2010)
    Does anyone out there know of a reset code for these indicator light issues? My battery discharged on me when I went out of town for just (4) days (argh!) I noticed when I first jump-started it before switching out batteries that the DSC (4x4 light) and Brake indicator lights were the only ones...
