Yep, if that is the OEM battery you fared better than most. OEM tends to last ~5 years, replacements (not the same) last 3-4 years.


Cheers,

Did not want to wait for the battery to die, I went to autozone for a Duralast DL 49 for my 330i. It is actually for 540i, paid $89.00 plus tax, it is a bit longer than my OEM. OEM by now is probably close to $200.00.

Good luck.

Get a group 49 from an auto parts store for about 1/3 the price. Make sure it's 850 CCA, and has drain connections.

Run from the dealer; buy an Autozone one and put the rest away for a cooling system!
