I've got 94K on my '08 and I decided to go ahead and replace the battery. But the dealer charged me $507 when all was said and done! AND ( a bit of ranting to follow) who ever moved my car in and out of the service bay decided my seat position didn't fit his particular needs and moved every possible angle including the steering wheel! I hate going to the dealer. Ok, I feel better now.

It seems it would be wise to ask a dealership (stealership?) for a price before authorizing the work. The local dealership was adverstising less than $200 around Christmas time.

Here's a link:

That's reasonable if it's $200. Your right, you should always check first on price. Or call a few dealerships, if you have some few near you.

Im still on my original OEM. 08 135i with almost 60K. Still on my original water pump, too, although Im thinking of proactively switching out both if I decide to keep it. Im at the m235i/m2 crossroads right now.

I just checked with my dealer on a battery price since my starter just took a dump.

$417 for the battery installed at my dealer. They checked it and a new battery puts out 12.6 volts. Mine was putting out 12.2 volts. Service advisor said I had at least another year left on my battery.

I'll check with my independent shop on their price.
